Started playing the keyboard at the age of 4 and did his first performance at the age of 5 when he was graduating from the Apostolic Ark Basic School. Matthew also has a deep interest in the drums which was his first instrument of choice however the keyboard was more available to him. He still uses the keyboard to play percussion sounds occasionally. He loves track and field, life science and discovering new things.
He is of a quiet demeanor and shares a good rapport with his peers. Matthew has been a Christian from the age of 5 and has a passion for music and a God given ability to learn it. He received all his musical training at home from his father. He entered the JCDC festival in January 2016.
