I will be a businessman, you know you always have different types of dreams. It’s been a great journey in 10 years and when I count my blessings, I see that God has been so faithful. There are places that I have been to, that I never thought about. Though, I dream big, I have performed on some stages I never thought I would dare to”, he says.

When asked what he considers the highpoint of his career , he says: “ The high point of my career will be last year when I gave a speech at the World Bank Tedex .That for me was different ,because it had nothing to do with music.
