According to the SK Originale, “All that happened in 2020 with the Covid-19 pandemic was very unfortunate, especially all the loved ones we lost and how it affected many people. The only positive for me is that, it gave me time to reflect on my career and helped me to plan for the future with my team. My team and I have been working behind the scene and we have a lot in store in terms of music for my fans and all music lovers. The new single coming, “Show Me”, will attest to that.”
