As a young lad growing up, he
loved listening to music and as he continued, his passion increased and
he began teaching himself how to write music by listening to some of the
musicians he loved like Snoop, Dr.Dre, Redman etc.

Githurai” and released it in the year 2002. It became an instant hit in

The following year 2004,Mr.Googz parted with Vinnie Banton for solo
careers and it is during this time, he recalls being in clubs and discos
and hearing an inner voice whispering to him that if Jesus Christ
would come back at that specific time, he would not have made it into
the Kingdom of Heaven, unless he gets born again.

also became an instant hit in the Gospel scene. Here, he addresses the
Gospel artists and tells them the importance of using their music as a
tool to evangelise the good news which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
and not using it as a major way of making money to satisfy their own
fleshly desires.

Mr. Googz openly admits that his relationship
with God and His Word (the scriptures) , are the main foundation of his
music hence the reason why he took some years off the music scene to
build and strengthen this foundation, to be able to use his music to
impact and change the world with the Word of God.
