They were both great opportunities for me and also because both of these happened a couple of months into my debut this year, I see it as an awesome opportunity from a fledgling experience for me. To share the stage with such artists of such experiences was definitely an inundating and overwhelming experience. I hope to continue to get more opportunities and continue showcasing my music to the world.”

He explains, it is “a song I wrote with a melody that has resonated in my mind for a long but I never wrote any song in the past to portray it.
So during the lockdown in 2020, I decided to pick my guitar up like I have done several times over the years. I created a fusion of music, lyrics and sounds to express a period of time that I have felt in love, happy, free and blending all of that emotion with my music eclecticism and versatility.”
