What made you decide to jump into the music industry or music business?
Elikprim (ERA: ) Luckily for me, I discovered my love for music during my tenure office as a prefect. I realized my passion for music was deeper and more sensitive, so I developed a love for playing instruments too. My passion for music started back in school and then I decided to pursue music as a full-time career so I started writing and recording at Master mix studio. These songs officially launched my career on a new level. Now, I am officially signed to Nexx Vibes Entertainment.
