1. *You’ve had an impressive start to your career so far but where did your passion for music begin*

2. *you’re only 28 years.what is your advantage by being so young and already in the international music space*
> I think that because I started when I was so young, I was able to hone my skills in terms of songwriting and performing. I am only 28 years old so I will continue to hone those skills. I always say that knowledge and experience is power and I think that plays drastically to my advantage.

3. *Broken Mirror your single, really made an impact. Why do you think so many people indetified with that particular song?*

> I think Broken Mirror resonated with a lot more people because it’s extremely international sounding. Most South African think it’s an international artist not from Africa and having the song appeal to audiences around the world & not just South Africa has helped people identify with it.

expressed through songs, and that is what propelled me to take it to the studio and celebrate their lives”

6. *What can the audience expect to hear on the tracks off the project?*

> The sound is unbelievable so its a miracle music. I’ve kept true to the international influence fans have come to know me for. If you like Broken Mirror, you will love this album.

7. *The album has heavy Rnb & Hip Hop focus.what drew you to this direction with your sound?*

> I like RnB, I like Hip Hop, I like pop i think the genre’s get everybody’s attention & describes who I am. I think the genre’s popularity speaks volumes and I wanted to be at the forefront.

8. *Now that the album is about to be out, what does 2019 have in store for you*
