Success is no stranger to Benïssa. Back in 1996 he founded the first Dutch singing r&b-rap-reggae combination group called Arnhemsgewijs. Lloyd DeMeza was invited to be the lead singer of the group. The result was two top 5 single hits and a hit album in the Netherlands.
In 1998 Benaïssa, that time known as Kenny Wise, toured Germany and Europe as the opening act for such reggae dignitaries as Michael Rose, Michael Prophet and Frankie Paul.
Benaïssa is one of the few real talented reggae singer/songwriters from the Netherlands and proved, by opening the Sean Paul show in The Hague in 2003, that he is able to rock a massive crowd.
Since then Benïssa has been a regular performer on the Dutch scene with solo single releases that have reached the Dutch top 100 music charts.
Benaïssa continues to hone his songwriting skills, and the quality of his music and lyrics have attracted many talented artists. Working on a worldwide release with established talents Lloyd DeMeza, Benjah, General Degree, Ayya, Lady G, and TinQ, with backing tracks laid down by musicians Sharp Axe Band stationed in Germany, Benaïssa has put together a collection of songs that cover the spectrum of human experience.
