He was born in the suburbs of Bern, where his parents found a new home after fleeing their homeland in the early nineties before the civil war.
Murphy first showed interest in music in his early childhood, after his aunt, a parish pastor, encouraged him to sing in the church choir. He spent a good deal of his teenage years in youth institutions and at the age of 20, he decided to pursue music full time. He released his first song "dr louf" in 2016. It was the first real public’s introduction to the singer/songwriter and it had an instant impact. In 2018 he produced Bango te (feat. Babastreet) with his Congolese compatriot Babastreet and the Bernese producer Merlin, which may be seen as his “breakthrough track”, as the authentic and original Afro rumba song, first ever released in Switzerland, led to an ever-increasing fan base for the young artist beyond the fringes of his native Bern.
Murphy has now found his musical identity. His lyrics are in Swiss dialect, French, Lingala, English and Spanish, which thrusts him into the international spotlight.
Beyond his work of music, Murphy is also the co-founder of the clothing brand Killa.
