Recently, his famed fictional character Nomatriquency popularly known as “Tricky Baby” is making moves of her own as the star of the new "Dare to Compare" parody reality series in partnership with retail giant Game.

Talking about his collaboration with Game he said: “Social media has been such a powerful tool for me in building a loyal fan base. So when embarking on this collaboration with Game, it was key that we speak to my fanbase by putting Nomatriquency in a real-world setting where she can interact with fans be it at the till or in the store. 

"The reaction has been explosive, I didn't know that Tricky had a huge fanbase. Viewers can look forward to seeing her interact with fans in different parts of the country".
