Singing for so long but I love singing and I don’t know what to do about it.

None for now, I am clean. I rarely experience any strange thing.
What are you busy with at the moment?
Trying to push my album, it’s my latest handwork. I did the single, WonTi Gbe’wo Mi De and another blockbuster with Sauce Kid called Yonke….
If you died today, what would you regret?
It’s appointed unto a man to die but once, after that, the judgement. Anybody can die anytime, if I am dead, I am gone forever.
If music failed you today, what else would you do?
I look for something else to do, what you pray for is good life and the grace to be alive, no disability etc.
Do you go to church?
I hardly go to church. Divine grace covers me, may God help us.
What do you think about more than anything else?
I think about God but I rarely have time for Him due to the fact that my Sundays are my busiest days.
