“It feels so great, man.
Especially when you spend time making the music and spend a lot of time on art.
It’s just amazing to see that people appreciate the music around the world.
Not just Africans because that’s why I make music.
I’m just trying to connect to the world and just spread good vibes to the world.
So yeah. It’s just very, very…
It’s a blessing to me to be here, play my own role and do my own thing.
But I’m very thankful.
I’m very thankful that people love the album. Every day I wake up it’s like… I see something nice that makes me go, ‘Oh yeah, we did it. We did a great job, man.’

“First of all, it’s a crazy generation we’re living in and as time goes by, as they exposed to everything.
So it is very, very important to let my kids understand life and understand themselves.
I wouldn’t want them to emulate me, be even better human beings.
That is my own important role to be able to raise great, amazing human beings, man.
But I mean from the soul, cause whenever I meet a great person, I’m happy.”

Just by me just staying true to who I am, so yeah.”
