He developed an active YouTube channel, posting music videos for several of his songs, including "Fallen Star" and "Don't Wanna (Hear You Say)."
He was born in London, England, to a Caribbean father and an Indian mother. His parents divorced when he was nine years old, at which point he moved in with his grandmother.
