I am into pop, r and b. Motivational music. I sing music for the mind and soul.
What has the experience been so far, support and all?
What can I say, every situation I go through I count as an experience. Some people would want to take your talent for granted because they want to support you. But in all, Kayevisuals is the reason I am known in my school and outside my school. He helped me shaped my talent and gave it a brand. I thank him for that
Nice, Good friend I guess…

I saw it was not an easy joy, that’s why I am off and on. But there’s is a balance to it. But in all studies comes first for now
What has been your lowest or disappointing moment?
Uhmm, that would be when my Dad found out I was into music, He was not happy about it. He was like studies first and all that. But he’s good now. It wasn’t easy convincing him. But it’s all good now.
What’s your biggest achievement?
Ooh, let me see… I finished performing somewhere at G. R. A, and a young guy walked up too me and said “The words of the song you sang restored my hope”. And I was so happy I was a blessing to what ever he was going through.
