CC. What plans have you put in place to make you grow as a brand?
PC. Just like in any life set up, for an individual to grow in every aspect of life they need to be close to their customers/fans. I believe a close relationship with my fans will help me grow as an artist. I have quite a number of interaction projects set up by my Management. A lot of giving to the society than receiving to. Not only am I dedicating to giving, I am also brushing shoulders with the biggies in the music industry as a learning platform and overall, putting what I’m learning in school to practice and working hard, am sure my brand will be but something exciting.
