Soon, his family moved to Canada in 1990 where in 1993 he released his debut album, Gaairan Naal Penghan Jhotdiye. It became a colossal hit and Waris became a huge star with more huge hit albums after his debut. These included Sohniya De Laare, Hasdi De Phul Kirde, Sajjre Challe Muklave and Gali Gali Vich Hokay. In 1998 Manmohan Waris released the song Kite Kalli Beh Ke Sochi which is considered one of the biggest hits in the history of Punjabi music. Waris soon signed with Tips Music and released the album Husn Da Jadu on it in 2000. After the success of this album Tips released Manmohan Waris's Gajray Gori De and Dil Vatte Dil. Manmohan Waris then started his own record label, Plasma Records with Kamal Heer and Sangtar. He has released the majority of his music on the label since then. In 2004 Waris released "Nachiye Majajne" on Plasma Records. The album furthered his success and in the same year he toured in the "Punjabi Virsa 2004"tour.
