“But there is also a fear. There’s this fear that you’ll be thrown into this lifestyle, which I know is part of it in some way, but it’s very different when you have a programmed lifestyle.

“It’s going to be a lot of work for him and he’s so excited, and yes I’m proud but also a bit scared like I guess anyone would be.”

“I hope he was brought up well enough to be humble, respectful and always polite and that’s the one thing I’m so strict about him.” I hope he will do very well.

He continued: I would just like to say thank you to the @rebelress team alongside my dad who helped me become an artist.

“And of course a big shout out to @sktartist and @marcellonoego who are very talented and have been working with me on this project since the beginning.”
