the same cos i remember when i started i had to plead on people to put me on bill or give me the chance to perform at a show but now people call me to perform at shows and most of these shows I do charge them, its just marvelous how God has been so good to me even tho i have not reached the level that i want to be im still grateful and im hoping to get there,Life is wat matters if there is life then there is hope so hopefully i will make it trust me🙏
