“Ni kweli kuna changamoto kwenye upande wa burudani, lakini muda mwingine kukata tamaa ni mwiko au dhambi kwa kazi ambayo unaipenda na kwa upande mwingine, inazungumzia wasanii ambao wanaishi maisha ambayo sio ya uhalisia ila na imani sio wote watakaokuwa wanaacha muziki ipo siku atarudi tu” said Godfrey Mngereza.

People will tell you half-truth about what really goes on, and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and being a sincere advocate for what facing your demons can do for You.
