Favourite song to perform 🎤: I love performing Ex at the Party because it’s an Emotional song, with some depth… it allows me to express myself more on stage.

I also love the Element of slight rock n roll.
Proudest career moment? 🏆Honestly everything. This is what I love to do. I love the process of creating music, concepts for videos, performing for my fans and feeling their energy. Of course receiving the accolades and the plaques is also a bonus but I can’t imagine my life without music. The whole journey is beyond special to me.
