Do you have a groundbreaking story you would like us to publish? Please reach us through firstname.lastname@example.org!
"You know how they say a prophet is never celebrated in his own home. I kind of broke that curse. I've been in that position for a long time, imagine how I felt."
The singer also talks about not owing anyone anything:
"Nobody passed anything to me so there's nothing for me to pass to anybody. Whoever has a story to tell should tell it. That means you're chosen to do it. Nobody is forced to do anything that they are not forced on earth to do. But if you are put on earth to do something, then you will know you have to do it."
