Yama Buddha was by far the most popular rapper in Nepal, especially among youth. Unlike other Nepalese raps, his songs are based on eclectic affairs. 'Saathi', 'Footpath Mero Ghar' and 'Yo Prasanga' depicts the real problems faced by Nepalese society such as poverty, drug addiction, sex trafficking and homelessness. Songs on relationships are 'Ama (Mother)', 'Didi (Sister)', 'Pagalpan(Madness)'. Similarly, famous songs on other various narratives by Yama Buddha include 'Jutta ma', 'Audai chu ma' (for the movie Talak Jung Tulke), Aawaran (co Priyanka Karki). He also collaborated with international artists Iraj, Chingy and Neha Kakkar in 'Nachana'. He frequently performed live abroad (among Nepali diaspora) in countries such as India, Australia, UK etc.
Yama Buddha died on 14 January 2017. The singer was found dead in his bathroom at around 6 AM. It was reported that the singer committed suicide in his residence in North London, cause of his death is mysterious.
