So He (Music) is like my best friend, holding my hand through it all!

Then he calls me one time saying he was outside my house.

When I eventually met him, instead of talking about my money he asked me out – it was really annoying!

Q. Have you ever read something untrue about yourself on the net? What was it?

A. Nope nothing, nothing I can remember anyway.

Your 2017 debut album, ‘Neo’ was massive and gained international recognition.

A. I enjoy travelling.

Q. Five things people don’t know about you?
