“Family holds immense significance for me. Raised by my mother, my father may not have been physically present, but his presence is still felt. However, his current whereabouts remain unknown to me,” he said.

The song also talks about his journey from Embu to Nairobi where he eventually burst into the limelight.

“I initially came to Nairobi for studies. However, my path led me to the world of music. In my early days in the city, I faced challenges of getting lost and experiencing frequent robberies. Fortunately, I found my brothers in H_art The Band on the streets, and we formed a bond. They have been a constant source of support, caring for me ever since,” he reminisced back then.
