You’re currently very busy with all the preparations for the release of your debut album in June. How are you getting yourself ready mentally and physically?
I’ve been doing a lot of dance training for the live shows and the videos that are coming up. We’re going to release two singles before the album release so that’s not much time for making two videos and all the other shoots that are coming up. I also try to take as much as free time for myself, which is very hard these days. To be home and not do shit is so hard.
I’m not only a singer and have so many things to do. Right after this interview, I’m heading into a meeting with architects because I’m designing 8000 square meters. It’s so hard to find time for myself at the moment, but I have to. Otherwise I’ll get crazy with the album release.
The media are slightly going crazy for you and calls you ‘the next big thing of 2020’. How happy are you with the response so far?
Of course, I couldn’t be happier. I want things, but I never expect anything. I just want enough to live for myself. But on the other hand, I need to be a millionaire, because I have to save some people from poverty in Africa, so I have these different objectives. I just have to say that I’m so happy with everyone’s response, but I wasn’t expecting that. I expected things to take more time to be honest.
The music that I’m bringing is not the music you used to hear, because when you look at the top 10s all over the world, there’s nothing like my music. It’s as if I don’t really belong anywhere, so I need to work harder and I’m just so glad that people actually wanted to give it a try. It gives me so much happiness.
