Exodus was raised by a single mother, who died when he was 10 years old. He was then taken in until he was 12 years old by his polygamous father. Exodus had to join the streets of Kampala after being rejected by his physically and mentally abusive father. At age 12 in 1996, he started feeding in dustbins, smoking marijuana, sniffing petrol and pick pocketing for a living around Katwe, Dewinton road and Owino market which was his base. In 2001, he left the streets for Nakulabye in Kiyaaye where together with a friend, Dan Kimuli, began a new life.

After meeting Pastor Kayanja in 2002, in 2004 he became a leader and singer in the church choir. It is the same year that Isaac Rucibigango (Rucci) recruited Exodus and two others, Bahati Nsereko and Kenneth Tusubira, to form the Sauti band that toured the Great Lakes region.

He toured Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya. While in Kenya in 2007, he left Sauti. In 2008, he released his first song Ganjaman. The song later became very big and it took over Uganda and beyond. He followed that single with Addicted, I am Walking and his biggest hit yet, Igwe. He is now working on his first 12-track album. With only four songs under his belt, Exodus has been nominated for, and won more awards than many musicians who have been in the field much longer. In 2009, he was nominated for an MTV Africa Music Awards and won four Buzz teen awards.[4] He has also won the Groove awards based in Nairobi,Pearl of Africa Music Awards; won two Olive gospel awards[6] and was nominated in the All Africa Gospel Music awards in London as one of Africa’s best gospel artistes.

Exodus is famously known for hits such as IGWE, PROPHECY, ADDICTED, TOSUMANGILA AND TELI DOGO. He is known for having revolutionarized the gospel industry ever since he did ” Ganjaman” as he was testifying as to how God turned from a ganja man to a preacher man.
