How have you been keeping up during these Covid-19 difficult times?
Covid-19 has slowed down a lot of us in the entertainment industry.
It has really affected the balance in how we generate income through our business since most of us are dependent on physical shows, but I always find the good in the bad so I would say in terms of quality, Online platforms, and putting in work, we have had time to grow lyrically and find innovative ways of being a part of the global space trough streaming platforms.
What is the one thing you have identified that you never knew about yourself in the last year?
I have identified a lot of strengths about myself actually.
Because we had a lot of time to reflect I realized I am more of a progressive musician.
I go for everything that brings results.
I am consistently now spreading my creative wings and I believe the road ahead is promising.
Tell us about your music?
Well I believe my music is always more of life lessons, which either I have gone through or people close to me have experienced.
It is really relatable content that we all go through at one point in time.
There is so much negativity going on in the world.
Now that the industry is opened what can your fans look out for?
Well I have been spending so much time in studio and writing new content so there will be a lot more single releases from me, and definitely features as well as physical show performances as you know we are getting into the busy festive season.
I am currently working on my six-track EP to be released shortly before the album release.
