I never knew I could do that well in modeling until a friend of mine who does both indoor and outdoor photo shoot with a company called House of Mayoms told me to try modelling and therefore connected me to Delan Models, the agency that i have been working with. My photos were just outstanding and that’s when i realized that i have a prospective in it.
Eugene: It’s called ‘Gaga’. I released it in late July this year. It’s hip-hop with Afro beats. The song was just an idea of what ,man could go through when he is attracted to a lady but lacks the the confidence to approach her. I was not singing it to a specific lady as many people often think and ask me.
