Why I opted for music
Music had always been my first love, music comes to me naturally, so I would say Music choose me.

Inspiration
Like I said earlier, it had always been music, I would sing at every available opportunity and memorize every song I heard. But I was inspired to go into music professionally after I realized it’s the only thing that gets me extremely excited.

TV show
