“While writing “Shooting Star” – which is out on Joox, My Muze and radio stations – I was inspired by my long walk in the underground Hip Hop scene as a diamond in the rough, destined to shine once out and crafted to perfection. Too many obstacles along my music journey hitherto, so the song is a form of self motivation and prayer to keep moving forward and hopefully it will serve as a shield to others to propel and pursue their interests and dreams. I’m more than convinced I was born to accomplish a certain music mission, so I will execute it with full force and not settle for less. Not even the sky will limit me, that is why I only see Miracles Ahead!”
