“I was a student at BCE, and it was very exciting and interesting. I learned so much about the music industry and also the importance of having a social media presence. Being in a musical environment meant I was surrounded by creativity, which really helped to develop me as an artist. I have taken a lot of a lot of what I have learnt on my journey and I have found all I was taught to be very useful. BCE helped me mould into the artist I am and inspired me to reach for greatness.”
