However one year later at the age of 16 close to the end of his high school life he suffered Facial Paralysis. He was stroke so hard because he thought his music life was over. After help from Family and friends he went into face therapy to get back motion in the face. After a year he gain back 80 percent of the movement in his face. From there he started recording and was in a duo by the name of Mix Vibez and later tried out for the show called Duets. He and his friend Denzel Armstrong made a real impact on the show with songs such as Facebook Gangsta, Diggy Dagga, Bruk Pocket just to name a few.
After exposure to Belize Esko kept on doing music and he eventually matured into the music world and fully improved him from duets 2009 till today’s date, Last year 2012 was rather a great year for him making hits that really impacted the international scene. The song to make him get a lot of forward was WHINE off the Overproof Riddim. Countless djs international and local loved the song and countless dub plates where done. The song even made it on Eccentrix Sounds summer mixtape in Miami of summer 2012. The 2012 success wasn’t done as he team up with DEE DRE from Kingston, Jamaica to duh a next hit that would have people singing the song and djs playing it all over the country and clubs. The song was entitled “Get that Condom Gyal” a remix to PSY song GangnamStyle. It was a great 2012 for Esko and he is really happy and ready for 2013. Esko really thanks all the djs, Belizean artist, friends, and especially his family, like what Esko likes to say “Half a smile, but a full heart with the passion of music in life”
