Shorty after his debut album, the African queen singer left the Plantation Boiz crew to stand on his own (solo).


The award-winning star released his first track without his friends and he titled it “African Queen”. The track was well accepted by Nigerians and it was rated as the one of the best evergreen music of all time.
