Milandru joined the Rudimentals and started performances in Cape Town and a Reggae Festival in Pretoria, a feature on KYKnet. Working in studios in the Cape, Milandru recorded songs with notable musicians like Errol Dyers, Tim Parr.
Moving to Joburg and still writing songs led to meetings with MXO and a live engineering gig for Simphiwe Dana. In the early 2000s while working at a studio in Yeoville, he met Aura Msimang who was working on her third album called Afrikan Child and she wanted to work with young producers of Afrikan descent just like the album was called.
Milandru had the privilege of working on the bulk of the album and rearranging some songs that were started by other producers. It is a beautiful body of work and will be out in the near future. It was at this point in his journey that he knew he has realised his dream to live his passion of making music.
