"My works spring from my passion for music, the politics of challenging the lampooning the power of ancestral feasts that have been a part of my mother’s family life, the sensations of romantic engagements and the solace of domestic and social love, peace and harmony. There are mysterious forces that prompt us all to found relief in music, the very powerful strength that accelerates the confidence of accepting that we are what we are because of the incomparable and the ordinary people who saw the earth prior to our life form. The ones who’s strength of mind will always have a special place in our lives. In view of the fact that we are not the end of human evolution. We are for that reason indebted to pass on to future generations’ sound aspirations of loving our immediate families, be in awe of our friends and value our neighbors and communities as a general rule”.
