A stand out performer, Pookie soon caught the attention of R&B superstar Keith Sweat where he formed the group Ol Skool, a multiplatinum selling group on Universal Records. In 2000 Pookie was called in at the last minute to do background for entertainer Stan Mosely. Pookie learned 12 songs in five hours and gave a stunning performance on the show.
