Kcee and Presh ended their musical relationship in 2011 when they mutually agreed to go pursue solo careers. Recall that the young men broke into stardom in the year 2002 when they won the much-converted Star Quest competition.
According to the Limpopo crooner, they entered the competition after Kano-born hip-hop singer Eedris AbdulKareem advised them to do so. For emerging winners at the competition, Kc and Presh were offered a 4 years music contract with the Nigerian-based hip-hop, R&B, pop record label Kennis Music and also received a one million naira cheque. Their performance at the competition also earned them several awards such as Best Akwa Cross Artist (2006), The Most Promising Act (2002), Best Collaboration, Best South-South Artist (Niger-Delta, 2006) and others.
