Inspired by his mother, a vocalist in reggae music, Zawdi started out grabbing the mic on suitable occasions and locations to show his ways at the tender age of only six years old. Years later, during a holiday in 2001, his talent got noticed by Chuckie and Posh-E, who strongly encouraged him to pursue his dreams within the industry. When Zawdi got introduced to the legendary MC's Spyder and Gee, he hit the fast lane. In the short period of nearly a year, Zawdi achieved to become an appreciated name in the small world of quality MC's and managed to get crowds ecstatic in clubs all over the Netherlands. His stunning vocals supported the sets of DJs like Afrojack, Chuckie, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Quintino, Roog, Gregor Salto, Sidney Samson, Leroy Styles, Laidback Luke, Billy the Klit, Benny Rodrigues and many more. Zawdi is a common used MC at many gigs of the Crème de la Crème of Dutch House DJs like Afrojack, Quintino, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano to name a few.
