Kongos continued to work in the music industry as a record producer, sound engineer, TV jingle and theme music composer and songwriter, as well as handling the programming of the Fairlight CMI synthesizer on Def Leppard's 1983 album Pyromania. "He's Gonna Step On You Again" is cited in the Guinness Book of Records as being the first song to use a sample. His two biggest hits "He's Gonna Step On You Again" & "Tokoloshe Man", were later succesfully covered by the Happy Mondays.
