3. Apart from following your dreams how do you stay fulfilled? 

I stay fulfilled by keeping myself humble and grounded. A lot of people in my position would allow this world to consume them, but I know it isn't all it makes out to be.

4. Which places do you call home and what do you love about those environments? 

My home is home to me as it is a place of comfort.

13. UKAFROLISTA has been going for 6 years, congratulations, what has been your greatest challenege and success story?

To do what makes sense to me and my demographic. You have to stay true to the reason you started, otherwise you will go off track.  I keep things 100% real and true to me. I don't like to do things that don't feel right to me.
