He previously (2011) was a member of the label, Jah One Production Company, of which Aidonia is the head. That same year, 2011, he released Chillin’ Time on the overproof riddim. This became a hit song.
Navino later left the camp and landed a deal with Patrick “Roach” Samuels and Justus Arison of Ja. Production Company.

Navino had had other hits such as, “If It’s Not Money” and “Real Friends” – a Seanizzle Production; “Wine Up Fi Mi” ( Anthony Records) and “Bag A Gyal” produced by Johnny Wonder on the 21st Hapilos label.
