Continuing, Exotika said, “Street credibility taught me both sides of life – how to win and count my loss. I saved for my education via street hustling.
When I gained admission to study accounting, I met friends in school who love music and became a member of their band.
It was then I recognised that music was the main reason why I live and see music to be a way of letting the world know that mankind must love each other to survive.”
