How would you say COVID-19 has affected your life?

To be honest I don’t know how to answer this because I have been in the music industry for more than 20 years and when Covid-19 hit I was not yet ready.

At first, I did not know it would take this long but here we are.

What would you say Government needs to do to balance between preserving people’s lives as well and catering for the entertainment industry?

I don’t have any celebrity crush.

I wouldn’t date a celebrity, to be honest.
