In 2010, he got his first stint as in-house Art Director for a design firm in Doha, Qatar. The same year, he and his brother Rogel Africa founded GOAT (Greatest of All Time Clothing), a local independent clothing brand that has a growing fan base – skaters, metal/rock heathens, and hip-hop heads.

His works are characterized by his use of heavy lines, linear patterns and cartoon style of illustration.
