Returned home to Torit thereafter and briefly pursued music carrier for a while before relocating to capital Juba in 2007.
Started a group called “New Sudan Superstars’’ after just a single music album, I went as a solo.

In 2008, I recorded my first album title ‘’Binia Lotuko’’, the same year I did another music album called ‘wasaka batal’ talking about the danger garbage.

In 2009, the name Silver X became the most popular in my home town Torit, to the whole state, and stated breaking into northern Uganda and eventually to Khartoum in Sudan.
In 2010, I released a monster album that sold me the country ‘’Fetisu Sukol (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7haFjxhTu3s) ’’.
