Let's reminisce back a little bit, how will you describe your feelings the day you emerged winner at the KEA awards?
Wow mehn!!! That Date Remains Epic in my Calendar. That was my most Treasured moment and a Big Spotlight on me and my Carrier. I felt over Excited at some point I couldn't believe it, cause it was more of a "let me try something " not knowing I had the Highest Votes amongst others. All i wanted was a Larger Audience who are gonna pay attention to my Craft and ever since I Won the KEA Awards, Next Rated in 2016 it gave me that which I always Craved for.. So am always Excited and Deeply Glad anytime I Reminisce to that Day cause It gave me a Bigger Platform, Made it clear to me that the Future looks good over my side and I made lot of people proud with That Award. So that Scenario of Success was a Big Blessing to me!
