Mega's reputation as a talented young DJ grew as a teenager. He began performing at local stage shows and was introduced by RICKY GENERAL to notorious reggae mogul/ producer Jack Scorpio. It was while recording with black scorpio lable that mega earned his name from an elder musician, black mice, for his intense delivery and provocatiive vocal flair. He began to record tracks like GIVE IT A EASE witch is the first song the magician as he is called by his friends as ever recorded. the song echoed the harsh reality of the life that surrounded him with a positive message. Mega's swift hard-hitting lirical delivery distinguished him among the emerging DJs with songs that epitomized the dancehall era of the early 90s.
