Music: Shawn‟s preferred Genres are Hip Hop (Trap) and RnB, as a composer, writer, singer, rapper and producer he started doing music at the age of 16, when he was just in his 10th grade. He started writing songs and his classmates gave him positive reviews and that inspired him to be more determined to pursue a music career. In November 2014, he met Mr. Moses Sibeko, a music producer, engineer and label owner (SBK Entertainment Pty (Ltd)) at Thusong Youth Centre. After playing him his demos, they started working together on releasing an album only during his spare time. Then, in 2015 they made an agreement to suspend the recording so that he can focus on his schooling (grade 12) and start after the final exams. They started working together again in 2016 only on weekends and also teaching him how to record and mix because he wanted to know more. He felt that it was not enough to be an artist, “one must also know and understand music production” so said Shawn. This year (2017) they can work more flexible due to Shawn being able to manage his school and music schedules, therefore Shawn is currently working on releasing his album in 2017.
He has worked with various artists either as a composer or a featured artist or featuring other fellow upcoming artists.
In 2016 Shawn released the „I made a call‟ single but It did not get airplayed since the release methods weren‟t as effective, so with that given he then focused on just improving on craft and making more music for himself and beats for other people to work on too.
