Sony PlayStation was so impressed with Sifu Music that they commissioned him to write the theme song and various instrumentals to their game Ragdoll KungFu : Fists of Plastic and the reviews have singled out the music for lavish praise.
SiFu Music has also been asked by The Sudirman Cup Organisation in China to write the theme song for the opening of their tournament in 2011 which is watched by millions all over the world, and is indeed a high honor.
SiFu Music says,"People kept asking me when I was going to put out a record myself, so I thought it was time I did!" His debut single "Aint Whatcha Say" is released on Dantien Records featuring Tyrell as guest vocalist.
SiFu was traveling to Shanghai for a gig and one of the air stewardesses on the 'plane to China was Tyrell. They got talking and she handed him a cassette tape. SiFu says,"I do get CDs from people but this was the first time I got a cassette. Luckily my brother still had his old sound system and it turned out we only lived a few streets away from each other!"
