The one I am currently doing; dancing and entertaining.

Biggest misconception?

I take every mistake as a lesson in future.

Best childhood memories?

My first kiss with my crush, Joyce, on top of a tree. That was memorable because it happened quite often and no one got to find out.

Worst advice you have ever received?

I once had a manager who advised me not to take any gig only to find out later he was working in cahoots with our competitors. It discouraged me, but I got back on my feet.

Biggest addiction?

Listening to music.

One thing you love about being an entertainer?

It gives me satisfaction to see people enjoying and dancing to my music.

Highest would be Sh200,000 for a gig that I attended for two hours. Lowest would be Sh500 while my entertaining journey was still fresh.
