Laser said that there used to be rap battles in class with the likes of Glen Mafhuwa, Makondelela Unandavha, Sandi and Sibusiso Nthangeni and Mmbude Rotondwa from Muledane. That was where Mmbude Rotondwa noticed Laser and called him for a recording session at his studio, that was called Nature boys production. In the very same year, he released his first hit single, Ri Vha Venda alongside Nature boys’ group.
In the song Cyril Ramaphosa, Laser said he was showing appreciation for the president of the country.
