With music is how feelings sound like, so I express how I feel with my music and I tell my stories.
To be the biggest artist ever
I would do all it takes to close the gap between the rich and the poor

Everything around me inspires my music, where I come from, what is around me and what I experience, All those aspects play a part in my music.
That nothing in this world is impossible, if you can dream it you can reach it.
I feel like I'm on top of the world, like nothing gets better than this.
Musicians have the what I believe is the harshest reality ever where you'll find an artist doing very well with their music but at the same time they are poor. Artists should be payed accordingly for their art, I think that's how we can improve the situation.
It's a great platform for artists especially upcoming artists.
Not being able to do what I love, which is music
Yes, by streamin and buying music from other artists and being a fan of local music
Good production, good song writing and good story telling.
