As the group embarked on the touring scene, Mr. Dalvin continued his Midas touch as the Creative Director for the groups Live Shows and the architect of the bands trendsetting fashion image - as JODECI went on to become Hip-Hop Soul culture-bearers and urban fashion innovators. Collectively, JODECI albums and singles have sold 25 million units and captured nominations and wins of several top industry awards including Billboard Music Award, American Music Award and the Soul Train Music Award to name a few.

Mr. Dalvin has also written and produced for multi-platinum artists such as Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Jewel, TuPac, Flo Rida as well as hit soundtracks Dangerous Minds and Above the Rim. Along the way, his eye for talent discovered Love & Hip-Hop’s own STEVIE J and female rapper, MISSY ELLIOTT.
