Which fa­mous de­ceased peo­ple would you in­vite to your birth­day party?

Michael Jack­son and Whit­ney Hous­ton with­out any hes­i­ta­tion, be­cause I know that with them it would be quite a party.

Where do you feel most at home?

In all the places where I feel good vibes and which put me in a state of to­tal peace and tran­quil­lity.

Who are you lis­ten­ing to?

The artists I lis­ten to vary ac­cord­ing to my mood, but I lis­ten a lot to Sade, and Con­golese rumba in­clud­ing Koffi Olo­midé and Fally Ipupa when I work.

What are you read­ing?

The last book that I read was Pur­ple Hibis­cus by Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie.
