I’ve learnt that songs are spiritual, and we as artistes, should watch the kind of songs we sing. Like the song “Once bitten, twice shy;” it was a quality song, but it was released at the wrong time when other things were happening. People just added one and two together, and concluded that the song was talking about my own separation. I still repeat that it’s a good song, and it’s only unfortunate that people read wrong meanings to it.
