Many of them have sold gold in Finland. Frederik is an unique character in the Finnish music scene. In the 1970's he often posed as a machoman, the "Tom Jones of Finland". In this decade he hasn't got big hits anymore, but he records new songs constantly. Many of them are covers like Kumimies (Dragostea din tei) or Seksipommi (Sexbomb).

His previous hits are also mostly covers - three big hits are from repertoire of German Dschinghis Khan group. He has also made cover songs of Village People and so on.
