Music is my calling to deliver messages from our ancestors, to educate the world about the beauty, , the pain and the power of Africa in our times. Soothing tunes and intense spiritual vocals are there to call African unity, the spirit of Ubuntu and total healing of the mind, body, and soul.
As I travel the world I want to inspire kids and everyone in Africa that their dreams are valid and they can be anything they want to be if they put their minds into it.
