The bands performs in cities like Kinshasa, Brazzaville and Libreville. In 2008, he decided to start a solo carrer and created a music genre called Tape Toke, as a result of featurings with the Congolese scene composed of raga and nbombolo (a mix of electronic music and traditional Congolese instruments). In 2012, he released a single called Aller Simple with collective Mboka na mboka. In 2014 he released the mini album Lol and in 2016 two singles called Motema mabe and Attendez.
