Michael can be considered as the pioneer of Hip Hop in Aizawl or even the Northeast of India as a whole. One of the most versatile artists of all genres, he could rap, sing, dj, produce and record. He produced two studio albums till 2017.
Michael won many awards and accolades in his lifetime including the Lelte Award as Best Rapper and Rimawi Khawvel Award as Best New Artist. His production and collaboration had shot many aspiring new artists to the top charts.
Michael performed in most of the metro cities and various clubs and pubs in India as a solo performer as well as with his band. He had a huge fan base in the North East.
Michael left for heavenly abode on April 7, 2017 and left behind his wife and two sons. He left the world a much better place through his goodness, humility, kindness and most importantly, his music. He will be sorely missed!
