When asked how music started, Dremo said “I started music when I was a kid, everybody loves music at that age. As a kid I write stuffs down and I give it to my dad and mum to go through. I cultivated that habit, even now, I do not free style in studio, I write every single thing down because I take my music seriously, I see myself as a lyricist. Professionally, music started in 2013 when i got signed to AP – Absolute passion – that was my first record label until I got signed to DMW. ”

That was where i got my first two lines and the song began – Fela ti pada wa, i want to light up the big sharwama. ”
