Sometimes it takes a little while for you to really get the exposure you need or to get to the level you need in terms of getting out there for people to know you on a wide scale not just your friends alone but a whole magnitude of people.”He says remaining focused on one’s dream may require patience as it took him some time to gain international fame but he held on to his dream and advises young singers to do likewise.“Sometimes it takes a while to build up to get to that level but hold on to your dreams it is possible because I didn’t know that I would be here as an artist representing music, representing my country doing music, I didn’t know that for a fact but I had that dream and I held onto it.”According to him, “Prior to being an artist I was just a conductor collecting money on the side of a bus helping people with their bags and before that I was just cutting hair, being a barber not a certified barber but cutting hair for my friends”.He said further that the Church was the first place he learnt of microphones, guitars and drum sets and expressed gratitude to his mother who would take him to church as a young boy.Although he says it is difficult to remain positive while being surrounded by negativity; his advice is that there is always room for positiveness.Click here to listen to Busy Signal’s impromtu promo: Busy_Signal“Keep holding onto your goals; being positive and staying focused these are the main things.
