Kong first realized a mix-tape named “Before the drop out” in 2017, by this time music was done just out of loving the craft and nothing more, “I honestly was skeptical about doing music as a career, for the simple fact that establishing a fan base is not as easy as we all would like to believe” he said.

After the mix-tape Kong took a break from the music scene and then came back with a banger that featured Yung Moses named “Ntoa Bathong” and that opened doors for a lot more moves after. “After having decided to fully invest myself in the music scene, I needed a different angle from how the industry was being approached, so switch from R.jay to KONG, which stands for KeepONGoing, I wanted to give the little fan base I had at that time the ability to take my determination and ambition and apply it in their own line of work, as to whatever it is that you are pushing just keep on going no matter how hard things get.”

On the 4 July, Kong dropped and EP, titled “The KONG EP” which is currently doing so well as we speak. it features the likes of Lu Srenk, HBK, Soundz, Yung Moses, L-Tore, Mj Elphy just to mention a few. “The reception has been so amazing I found myself having to shoot a music video for the fans’ fav song which was FOCUS that features L-TORE, and this was just to thank everyone for the support they are showing me.” The music video is out now and KONG revealed to us that there are bigger plans with the video than just YouTube.
