Mish gained prominence in 2011 with his song, ‘Akwa Ibom Ayaya’, which was a reflection of the achievements of the then administration of Obong Godswill Akpabio in Akwa Ibom state.

Released at a time the Akwa Ibom state’s slogan of the Godswill Akpabio’s administration was also tagged “Akwa Ibom Ayaya,” the track became an unofficial state anthem of the Annang and Ibibio people of the oil-rich South Eastern state.

As the hit track in his first album, REPLAY, the song also resonated with Nigerians from other tribes, as it showcased the rich cultural etiquettes of the Annang-Ibibio people, especially their rich and tasty delicacies.

It would also bring Mish, as a budding artiste to limelight, endearing him to his state government as well as his people. The song’s lyrics spelt the beauty of Uyo, the capital city of Akwa Ibom state, the then newly commissioned airport in the state and the desire of the Annang-Ibibio people to strive for excellence.
