We are a lot in our family and am hoping to make it big so i could take care of my family”.
The path to success has not been easy for stoshi since his focus on music and perfection drew him away from his studies, affecting his grades therefore his inability to further his education. Prior to exams his father had warned him to push music aside and focus on his education else he will noot take care of him if he fails but Stoshi was very adamant.
