You talk opening about being bi-sexual, what advice would you give to someone was struggling with their sexuality?
Don’t be afraid to talk to someone about it, either friends , family or support lines. No two people are the same and getting advice form a 3rd party can really help. I’ve always known deep down I’ve been attracted to both sex’s and have dated both along the years and people have tried to label me Gay or Straight, but I know I don’t fit into either of those boxes and I think people are now realising that life isn’t justBlack and White as that.

Where did you the film the video?
We filmed it in a small chapel in south east london called The Ayslum, I used to chapel in 2013 on my 2nd EP shoot for the ‘Under Attack’ and it was hardly used back then.
