"As a kid, my role models were Michael Jackson and Chris Brown, so I practised daily and watched their videos. Growing up, I had a lot of black and coloured friends, and every time they danced, I would copy them. I love dancing because I have complete control over my body when I dance. I exit m mind, and the music enters my body. For me, dancing is art. My favourite dance move in the amapiano industry is the Betha kick. If God has that planned for me in the future, I would love to dance professionally," he said.
