3. I love dancing even though I’m poor, actually very poor at it but won’t hurt to shake it off.
4.I love traveling alot.
Like I have many hobbies
So in short, everything that makes me happy I turn it into a hobby.

When did you realize you can actually sing and what was your motivation towards doing it ?

I realized I can sing when I was in class 2.
I was in a boarding school so I was in the school choir… I never missed any practice.
I always told my parents and everyone that one day I’d love to be a musician. So last year when I got to campus I realized that there was a studio around and immediately I went there. Actually it was at night. I was so eager that I couldn’t wait till morning. So I decided to do a cover song for a start and people liked it and I turned it to my motivation.

How has the journey been so far?

The journey has been tough since day one. First, I’m a student and I come from a middle class family, to record a song one needs financial support so I had to sacrifice some things to come up with cash to record a song. Sometimes I get to the studio to record a song but then if by any chance the people who’ve made it come to record their own songs, I have to be put aside till they’re done which is so painful but I can’t do anything about it.
There’s also Competition…theres a stiff competition out here, So you have to try hard and give people what they’ll love for you to hit. However, I’d like to thank my Dad for supporting me in this. Actually if it were not for him right now I couldn’t have had any recorded song. May God continue blessing him for me.
