#piasa massive. Never believe stereotypes...also never let the mass media be your tour guide. Go and become one with the truth, connect with the people, learn their language, get lost, find your way, let the people feed you, share what you have with them...even if all that you have is your culture. They'll appreciate it and you will experience a growth that is soul satisfying. Don't be afraid of the people, learn the ways of the streets because a time will come when the bubble of society pop. Then...the rich will be the ones with true survival skills. 🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹 📷: @alleyesonit

Music is a life force...prima materia 📷: @alleyesonit


........Purpose over Passion...... I was never passionate about music...not in the same sense as I'm interested and in love with the visual arts and football. Not in the same way as I study spiritual science and love to travel. Music, since I was alive enough to recognize it, has been the one thing that came completely natural in my every move...it feels as if music exists independently and separate from thought as part of my being. It is the entity that drives my very existence and has caused me to accomplish the many other things that I have grown to become passionate about. For example, music has brought me closer to football than I was ever able to be as an actual player (I realized this while I was on stage at Manchester city home stadium and also that training session I did with the under 21 team in Jamaica). Being a musician was what made me travel this marvelous planet and experience the spiritual arts and sciences and the many cultures I spend so many nights reading about. Music is what enabled me to give. Give to humanity something it never had before. I said all of this to help us to imagine purpose as the entity that holds the key to open the doors to all that we feel passionate about. So i stay connected to music...stay connected to my purpose.
