creation and there is something magically about creating music from scratch which always left me curious especially back in secondary School in Nigeria and also I do see a lot of musicians that have the passion but their parents don’t believe in their dreams as much as they do. I’m very lucky to have a very supportive parenthood towards my music. My mother is my biggest fan and she has a good influence in my music especially the “Yoruba” lyrics Aspect”.
