In 2003 he launched a TV show called Star Factory at Prima TV, a Romanian TV channel. The original style of Alex Velea allowed him over 10 years of collaboration with Anda Adam (Selecta) , Mandinga (When I'm with you), Connect-R (Burning Love), Smiley and Don Baxter (I gave money), etc.

Yamasha, his first album, appeared in 2006. For this album he worked with other musicians like Smiley, Moga, Connect-R, Matteo and Don Baxter. The three singles taken from it, Yamasha, Love at First Sight and My Lady met a huge success and marked the beginning of Alex Velea's public appearance.

The success of Alex Velea was confirmed by numerous awards including Romanian Music Awards for best show, best male and best new artist. All these made me consider him My Hero as his determination inspired me in being more hardworking at school and more focused on my projects.
