Meeting new and old talent everyday, which means growth to my career.

The year is almost coming to an end, what are some of the resolutions you have been able to accomplish?

Well, there’s a couple of them, but the best that really impresses me is; managing children from the streets of Nakuru, especially a guy called Sijay. I mentored and accommodated him and now he has two professionally made tracks and videos.

Knowing someone really cares when the whole world doesn’t.

Best and worst advice you ever got?

Worst was when my spiritual mentor advised me to stop dating my then girlfriend, now wife, because she was from a different church that he thought or believed was demonic. Best was when my boss advised me to embrace my talent and passion full time. He still keeps track of me although he relocated to America to be with his family after he retired.

Memorable country you have ever been to?

Somalia.  Did you know people in that part of sub-Saharan don’t eat while walking? Well, know that now.

Worst misconception people have about you?
