In the 1980s, Negara moved from Palu to Jakarta to pursue his dream to become a professional musician. His earlier musical experience was to join a band with Ecky Lamoh, Gideon Tengker and Henky Supit, all are Indonesian guitarists. In 1988, Negara entered ILW, a school of music in Jakarta, to gain his musical formal education, since he had his earlier knowledge just by autodidacticism learning. In this stage, he met Ivan, who later became a fellow member in Slank.

Kaka and Bim-Bim recruited three new members, Ridho, Ivan and Negara. Initially, the fans were not very satisfied with the appearance of new members as Slank has had six albums with the ex-members. Surprisingly, when they released their seventh album, called Tujuh (seven in Indonesian), the popularity increased dramatically and the albums sold broke the record of Slank's other albums. Nowadays, with his audio engineering skill, Negara is in charge of Slank's sound engineering and created many songs with Slank. Since he joined Slank in 1997, they have released seven hit albums in Indonesia and some Southeast Asian countries.

Most of the time, Negara uses Fender guitar brand for recording and live performances. Two types of Fender that he commonly uses, Telecaster and Stratocaster. Not so long ago, a guitar company, named Extreme offered him to use their guitar. Then Abdee agreed to use Extreme guitar as his main gear, however, since he loves Telecaster so much, he wanted the same guitar model as Fender Telecaster to this company. [1]
