South African based Cameroonian RnB singer Wax Dey was also an actor in this group. Wax played de guitar while Blueprint played the piano for the movie soundtracks.
           Blueprint started writing lyrics and rapping at 12, while in PSS Bafut, after being taught how to rhyme a verse by his classmate Voma Paul. He later got exposed to cable tv by his dad and he got carried away by Nas, who till date, remains his best rapper.
         Hakeem released his first single "daddy hate my swagga" in June 2012, giving him exposure and being looked upon by many as Cameroons strongest up coming rapper.
          Hakeem released "Ma head di hot" ft Young Fame, his younger brother, as the second single from his upcoming debut studio album, T.R.O.C.  'Ma head di hot' became Blueprints strongest sound ever heard by his fans as it strayed away from soft sounding music, to banging club beats. It garnered him to the eyes of other rappers, DJs and radio and tv personalities. It led Hakeem  to be contacted from London by Ndeh Ntumazah entertainment to perform at the "Bamenda Yes We Can Show", which featured veteran Ivorian musicians like Borosangui and Dj Jacob and Cameroonian rapper, Stanley Enow.
          In 2014, Blueprint put the T.R.O.C album project on pause and decided to team up with his brother Young Fame to release their upcoming mixtape, Roc de Mic. Two videos were shot to be released as singles to power the project. 'La la' was released as an audio and 'Ngomgham BWAII' which is the talk on every lip popped out as a video.
          The heat of Ngomgham BWAII made Hakeem perform to be booked as one of the major artistes to perform at the Dj Arafat concert, at the municipal stadium, Bamenda.
              At moment 'La la' video is still being edited and will be released before Roc de Mic mixtape hits online stores.
