He revealed that he is now making strides in helping singles find love. He has successfully helped over 34 couples get into long-term relationships.
“Some of those couples have invited me for kukyala. Also this year I have a wedding coming up in December. The matches are still ongoing, it's just that now I don't have a platform where I can project my voice. But I’m trying to formulate a way to inform people about what I am doing. I’m trying to build content around it and to help as many people as possible,” he explained.
Kanyerezi, who also goes by Doctor of Small Animals, said he is setting up a production studio at his residence for the same cause.

He made his first show in senior five at the then Wallet Pub Kabuusu. “Before I went to the stage, the people backstage were wondering how I was going to pose as a Bbaale Francis character at my age. So they got powder, got it all over my hair and face for the beard and I presented my first act,” he narrated.
“Everything happened so fast, in one week I was a star. I acted as the anchor for our show with the Amarula Family at the WBS egabudde concert. We had a solid performance and Kenneth Kazooba offered us a show on WBS TV to create a similar concept.”
With his fame, he was given several offers from different media outlets such as Capital FM which he missed because he was still in school. However, he was finally given a chance to present on Spirit FM in Mukono for a Saturday show, where his radio journey began.
