From fitness to spending time with loved ones, from education to immersing me in nature, each facet of my life contributes to my holistic well-being.
By nurturing my mind, body, and spirit, I ensure that I can continue to create music that resonates with my listeners and speaks to the depths of their souls.
This multifaceted approach to life allows me to strike a balance between my career as a hip-hop artiste and my personal growth as an individual.
Away from the studio, stage
When I am not in the studio or on stage, I strive to find balance in my life by engaging in various activities that nourish my mind, body, and soul.
One of my biggest passions is fitness. Physical exercise not only keeps me in top shape, but also provides an outlet for the stress and pressures that come with being an artiste.
Engaging in regular exercise helps me stay focused both mentally and physically.
Whether it is hitting the gym, or I am going for a run in the park, staying active is an integral part of my routine.
By pushing my body to its limits, I find inspiration and motivation. It allows me to unleash any pent-up energy and clears my mind.
Spending quality time
Another important aspect of my life away from music is spending time with my loved ones.
Being constantly on the go can sometimes make it challenging to maintain strong relationships, but I make it a priority to carve out time for my family and friends.
From gatherings at home to fun-filled adventures, these moments remind me of the importance of cherishing the people who have been with me throughout my journey.
Whether it’s cooking a meal together, watching movies or engaging in deep conversations, these connections bring me warmth and grounding amidst the chaotic world of fame and fortune.
Finding solace in literature
I am a lifelong learner and believe in the power of education. Outside of my musical career, I dedicate time to expand my knowledge and explore new interests. One of my favourite ways to do this is through reading.
Books allow me to delve into different worlds, gain perspectives, and acquire wisdom. When I want to unwind and relax, I turn to literature. Reading opens new worlds, broadens my imagination, and fuels my creativity.
From classic novels to contemporary poetry, I find solace in the written word. It provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, allowing me to immerse myself in different stories and perspectives.
Literature not only entertains, but also inspires me to push the boundaries of my own artistry and storytelling.
Recharging, finding inspiration
Nature and the outdoors play a significant role in how I recharge and find inspiration. Exploring the beauty of the natural world is both refreshing and invigorating for me.
Being surrounded by the majesty of nature allows me to reconnect with myself and find solace away from the hustle and bustle of the music industry.
The stillness and tranquillity of the natural environment inspires me to delve deeper into my creative process. While nature mesmerises me, I find solace in exploring my other passions.
One of my greatest interests which intertwines with nature is photography. Capturing moments through the lens allows me to portray emotions and stories beyond lyrics.
Being behind the camera gives me a different perspective on life, one that inspires me to see the world through a creative lens.
Joy in the kitchen
Another aspect of my life that ignites my creativity is cooking. I enjoy experimenting with flavours, combining different ingredients to create culinary masterpieces.
It is a therapeutic experience that allows me to express my artistic side, not through lyrics, but through the presentation and taste of each dish.
Cooking also brings people together, and I find joy in sharing my creations with friends and loved ones. It’s like composing a symphony of flavours, each ingredient playing its part to create a memorable dining experience.
