There's enough info and discographies to find, so leave that to yourselves to search around. I'm not sure what/where I heard first something from him, might be the 'Africa Never Sleeps' compilation or a track from his international debut 'Djam Leeli'. Anyway after hearing such music, you'll never forget his name and always check out something new coming from him. That has not always been to my taste, but the good ones I really liked a lot!!
