And at a certain point, you just squat down on the ground with your hands over your ears wondering how you’re gunna get out of this one.”

It took a few years to process and understand that side of me which will always remain a part of me. And I’m now ready to share my debut album with my fans and let them into that world… lil kiiwi’s world.”
