“Growing up, things were difficult for me. Having been brought up in a large family where there is only one income was difficult and also the fact that we have a set of twins meant double spending at the same time for my parents. I have always aspired for a lifestyle such as the one I see on tv, growing up and my family always told me that a lavish lifestyle isn’t good as it puts pressure on a person to maintain the it. Through my music, I want to prove that being an artist doesn’t always amount to doing wrong things such as taking drugs or selling them,’’ he explained.
