Amerado started his career when he was discovered by Azee Ntwene in 2015 as he emerged third at the Solid FM Freestyle Show to join fellow rapper Strongman Burner at MicBurnerz Music.

He was summoned to feature on the GH Youth All-Stars hosted by Mix Master Garzy to compose the official peace song for the 2016 general elections held in Ghana.

In 2017, Amerado released his lead single "I AM" which announced his presence in the music industry in Ghana. The song was rated 3rd in the Top 10 Ghanaian songs of January 2017 listed by Pulse Ghana.
