Tolani's style of music was described simply by Metro uk writer Malcolm Jack as "feel good afrobeat music with a message...that mixes traditional call and response vocals and chants". 
He started out as a rapper at age 13 and was part of a three-man group called Mboiz in high school. The group disbanded in 2011 when he graduated from Babcock University with a degree in economics in 2015. As an undergraduate, he kept releasing tracks and honing his musical skills.
He gained popularity in July 2017, when Abbey Road Studios picked his single "no yawa" as the only African song in the final 5 of the maiden edition of the metro uk and Abbey Road Studios' Battle of the bands contest.
He released two songs; "tTe world" and a cover of "don't waste my time" by Kkrept and Konan.The songs were released free in August 2015. He followed this up in December 2015, with the release of a grimy afrobeats track he titled "Ajigijaga". After a one year break, he returned with his first official single; "No Yawa" which earned him a top 5 spot at the 2017 Abbey Road Studios' Battle of the Bands Competition. In 2018, he released a follow up to No yawa title “live”, a song which he says was a tribute to one of his musical influences, Fela Kuti. Furthermore, he went on to release two more singles in 2018, the heart melting “wayo” and Shabba Ranks influences, “Ting-a-ling”. 
2019 began with him releasing a fun poppy- Caribbean influenced tune titled, Vitamin C and he is set to release an EP at the end of the year.
