Born in Kanagawa Prefecture, he made his singing debut in 2006, and subsequently released six singles, including "Geki Maji Mukatsuku", "1000% So Zakune", and "ChristMaster".
Before he officially changed his name, he was in a comedic duo with Kōsuke Takeuchi; their skit was called "Abare Nanchaku" (Raging Nunchucks).

In 2010, he launched a band, in which the members all cross-dressed.
