That is when he recorded his first song Everytime ‘’ Nikianza muziki nilikua na pupa sana, nilikua najua day tu nitaingia studio, Kenya mzima itanitambua’’ (when i started my music career, I was over ambitious and thought I will be star in no time) He tells how it has not been a walk in a park thing. Talking of his experience in the industry so far, Sheen explains that the only way to make it as an artist in the industry is to stand out.

You really have to be very calculated,” he remarks.
