Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I’ve always been passionate about singing and creating videos. I have always enjoyed the music. I started singing listening to famous singers and wanted to sing like them. Then I studied how to sing and began imitating their voice. Then years of vocal training helped with my voice to the max. I learned producing from watching videos on how to make my production.
Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
The most interesting story was that I’d been blessed to know personally a lot of artists, actors, musicians that I admired since I was a kid.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Always remember why you are passionate about what you do. The goal isn’t to make hit records but to make records that you are proud of and can hear yourself listening to in the long run. I used to burn out a lot and have writer’s block trying to make songs everyone else is making, but I said I’m going to do what is best for me.
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person whom you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My mother. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep on, to never give up on my dreams. And my father, who was passionate about singing.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I taught my audience to be more kind, belief in themselves, and never give up on their dreams.
Do you have a favourite Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
So my favourite quote so far is “I’ve learned that I am still learning” by Maya Angelou. I relate this quote to my life so much because I used to think I knew all the answers in my life, and it’s pretty funny because this goes with all aspects of my life, from failed friendships, relationships, and business acquaintances. It’s okay not to know the answer, and it is also good to ask more questions because we are still learning and evolving as people.

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?
