This motivated him to intensify more effort in his music career and in 1992/1993 he hit the Nigerian Music scene with another album, HUMBLE LION which had some unforgettable tracks like, He Gives Me Joy, Kandy Sea Has Come and Lots of others.
The market performance of this same album was excellent and the proceeds realized from the sales, made him an instant millionaire.
HUMBLE LION was applauded as one of the best reggae music ever waxed in Nigeria, to the extent that it was nominated as one of the best Gospel Album of the year and also nominated as one of the best Reggae Jam of the year, which he later won.
The encouragement and popularity he got from this Album propelled him to go into research for the third album, NO ONE KNOWS TOMORROW. The Album gave his musical career the first international face-lift as he was invited by so many music lovers to come to overseas for performance.
