He broke into the Nigerian music scene in 2009 when he released his addictive single “juju” in Abuja and Benue. It enjoyed wide airplay in major radio stations in the North as well as earned him his first series of concerts.

While in lagos, steverock dropped another single which features Choc boi rapper Ice prince titled “SUPERFLY”, produced by Dbanj records ace producer J-sleek, and went ahead to release the video which was directed by Clarence Peters few weeks later. The video became a toast on popular music stations across the continent such as Soundcity, Music Africa, Nigezie, Mtv Base and Channel O.
At the end of 2012, Steverock released to the delight of his fans a hiphop single titled SHOW FOR YOUR EYES where he collaborated with the finest hiphop heads in the industry- Pherowshuz, Cartair, Vector, Terry tha rap man and Morell. This joint which had over 20,000 downloads on the first day of its release, was rated as one of the ‘tightest’ hiphop collabos on the streets in 2012. He went ahead to drop yet another joint, this time a melodious song “BEAUTIFUL” for the ladies and was produced by Popito.
Steverock’s latest effort is a club banger titled “MAMA UJU” which dropped on the 21st of April, 2013 and is presently enjoying airplay on major radio stations in Lagos and Abuja. He is working on the release of his debut album later this year.
