Duke attended Seven Great Princess Acadamy, but was later moved to Osu Presbyterian Boys Boarding because he was self-opinionated, after completing Osu Boys, he further went to Sacs Secretarial Science Instituted to study.

He commenced his musical journey with a group called Naycha (Nature) & Agony, it consisted of Tinny, Zaqious and himself performing (rapping) from one place to the other. Since they knew what they were up to, their breakthrought finally came when their efforts was been appreciated, that was back in the days when they performed at Fun-World, Kidderfest, Recognized, Enter School Rap shows, at the National Theatre, they were the kingpins at that time.

After they worked so hard to come out with two smashing (2) Hit albums in 1997 and 1998, Tinny decided to go solitary, whiles DJ Nature and Zaqious chose to stay and work together as a team. In 1999 they both had much experienced and were more advanced so they had a favorable juncture of circumstance where NANA KING featured them on his album titled "SCARY" which had none stop air play at that time. They later released a single featuring Lazzy of VIP (VVIP) titled WARA BE BA.

With a this success, Zaqious also chose to go solo. So Dj Naycha was then by himself, he didn't end it there. He started composing music for some of the musicians and lucky enough by the year 2000 he became PRO for Kwase Pee’s KROKRO ME album.

He later went into DJing and promotions, due to the way some of the Ghanaian DJs handle and treat musicians.
