When did music start for you?

Music has always been in me. It began manifesting though, when I was 12.

What kind of music do you do and who are your musical influences?

I would say I make Afro pop. I do not believe in genres. I would describe my music though as uplifting, good vibes, and a power bank for your emotions through the day. My influences range from Tuface, to Outkast!

What’s exceptional about you and what are your goals as a musician?

I believe I am great at bringing the best out of people. Ironically, this is my goal as a musician – I wish to create exciting, fun-filled moments through my music, to allow my fans to do exactly what they want to.

Where do you see your career in five years?

I would love to run a Radio Station, while continuing to create music and visuals that will not only stimulate, but inspire daily.
