The second single from the album ”Hold On” became his first international hit. Gaining a lot of notoriety in the UK, it had major rotation on British radio stations and became a DJ favourite. In 2009, success of the track brought a nomination at the Urban Music Awards in the UK for Best Collaboration.
In 2010 another one of Mawuli’s hit singles ”Calling Out” becomes his 3rd number 1 single on iTunes Sweden for several weeks and made him an ambassador for a Swedish Charity Organisation called BRIS (Children’s Right In The Society). It is now the signature song of the organisation and Mawuli is an occasional volunteer at the call centre where teens get a chance to share their issues.<br>
