Tell us about your new single ‘Ronaldo’ and what first got you into music?


I like to dance, I like to live life, I like to celebrate when I achieve something in my life. I work very hard and I’m focused on what I want to achieve and that’s what ‘Ronaldo’ is – a song about all these things. I got in to music because it helps me to express myself and be understood.

I got my eyes and ears on what’s new and I like it. But that’s all I’ll say for now.
