Wilfy has sung over 3,000 songs, mostly in Konkani and had 500 stage shows. He has held 248 musical nites in Mangalore, different parts of Karnataka and even abroad besides publishing nine volumes of song book.

He had published a book 'Kogul Gaaithaa', comprising 40 volumes in four editions, 40 music audio cassettes besides six volumes of devotional and one instrumental album.
Rego said that Wilfy's intellectual works like published books or materials, record or release audios, videos or films in any form whatsoever or such works either in part or whole are solely part of Rebimbus' family and can only be used for competition, social functions, or free shows, but it  is strictly prohibited to use them in commercial shows or stage shows organized for commercial benefits.

He said that the entire family is truly touched by the messages and condolences offered to them by thousands of fans and well-wishers of the late Wilfy and shall ever remain grateful to the support and strength provided to them during these days of utmost sorrow and grief.
"They urge for your support, good wishes and blessings in the months and years to come, in order to continue and carry on with his works and performances, to take Konkani music, art and literature to greater heights and fulfill his mission," he said.
