Career

Before he was born, his mother performed and toured the country[which?] as a singer, and as a youngster it was common place for him to hear his mother singing in the house. His mother would say he was talentless and that he should 'move to the devil in the blue dress'.

By the time he was in his mid teens, Greenidge had already attracted a management team, and released a single, "Falling". During his teens, Donae’o put out a few singles, most notably "Falling" and "Bounce". Both made an impact on the underground, with "Bounce" winning an award for Best Live P.A. at the People's Choice Awards in 2003.

In November 2007, Donae'o started to promote "Devil in a Blue Dress", and released it on white label the following February. The song's success earned him a coveted spot at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival. His follow-up single, "African Warrior", certified Donae'o as an up-and-coming name in UK music.

Donae'o decided to have a record company on board, with burgeoning brand building entertainment company My Ish. In 2009, Donae'o released the album Party Hard, and featured in Lethal Bizzle's single, "Go Hard", from the album of the same name.
