By no means has KAS ambition exceeded his talent! He has become a household brand within the African music industry. So much so, that this multi talented singer song writer/ producer has been hailed as the future Puff Daddy of Africa, by some of the most reputable and accredited groups within the African media.
KAS not only has the vision of musical greatness, but also for those who have been fortunate enough to see him perform live, would know he is a true entertainer.
After years of co-writing and producing songs with the likes of Sir Shino Peters, M.I, Nneka, Goldie, Naeto C, 2face, Dbanj, and Wande Coal to name a few, he released hits Wind For Me, followed by the monstrous anthem Fi Mi Le in 2010.
Fi Mi Le written and produced by KAS himself, became a hit instantly. Selling over 1.2 million copies officially in Nigeria alone, earning him artist of the year/ song of the year for numeric awards:

KAS is presently topping the African music charts and from this singles alone, receives boundless airplay from radio stations across Africa.
In November 2011, he released his long anticipated debut album titled KAS FI MI LE in Nigeria and received rave reviews and is now currently planning his UK and European release in 2012 with Strictly Entertainment Music UK as his international agent.
In 2000 KAS had the privilege of producing and performing on a promotional campaign for the drink company Hennessey & Co (a brand which sells on average 50 million bottles a year Worldwide).
The single ‘Like A Bottle’ and video which featured a list of A-list recording artist was later released and its popularity in Africa demonstrates KASs ability to not only produce another hit single, but to be able to produce a track specifically for a commercial product, something very few African producers have been able to achieve or even consider delving into.
