CalledOutMusic has also featured on tracks with several artists including Gil Joe – Real Quick Remix; Becca Folkes – Control; and the2011 Mobo Award winner Triple O – Good Thing.
Following the succession of releasing numeroussongs over the past 2 years (I Will Serve, Working on Me, Still Standing, You’reMine, I Am Free, My Prayer, Love Around), CalledOutMusic has managed to acquirea combined tally of over 1Million streams on Spotify, and 3.5Million views onYouTube with his label HFP Music wherehis single “My Prayer” became his first song to reach a landslide of over1Million views (a feat only held by a few UK Gospel Artists). Not only has he managed to establish himself on the “A Step Forward” Gospel chart as #1 for his hit song “I Am Free”, but CalledOutMusic has since been on a trail of triumph including being the “Breakthrough Artist of excellence” at the African Gospel Music and Media Awards 2018; “Best Song” (You’re Mine) at Premier Gospel Awards 2018 where he performed My Prayer along with nominations for “Best Male”and “Best Song” at Tru Life Gospel Awards; and “UK Artist of the Year” at Gospel Touch Music Awards 2018.
