Benga is also noted for using acoustic drums on some songs, including "Live Drums" and "Evolution".

Benga released the cross-over anthem Night with DMZ's Coki in early 2008, followed by his second album, Diary of an Afro Warrior, both on Tempa. Resident Advisor described it as "one of the most anticipated LPs in dubstep yet." « hide
