I got a strong sense of peace and satisfaction every time I heard my favorite songs growing up. My interest grew even more as I got older, I wanted to write, sing, rap, perform just like my favorite artists I saw on tv." He said.
Knowing how the industry works, Acebergtm kept on working and improving himself as a musician till 2019 when luck smiled on him and he caught the attention of Sir Justine, CEO of Sir Justine World Entertainment Ltd (SJW Entertainment), who eventually signed him to the label in February 2020.
