We stayed at India’s best hotel, I got to taste the Indian food and experience their dance culture first-hand. It was epic. I remember I made some friends and they actually came from afar just to meet me. I’m glad they got to meet me because they said that their favourite afrobeat song is ‘Shake Body’. I mean, it was a validation that I was on the right path and that I was certainly making a mark globally. It was a transformational experience.”
Speaking about his marital plans in the future:
“A while ago, I used to wonder about the possibility of combining marriage or a dedicated love life with my music career. But as time went by, I came to the realisation that with the right partner; someone you have true friendship with, marriage may just not be as complicated as I had thought.
‘‘Right now, I am in a relationship and all I can say about my woman and me is that I’m happy. I’m very happy. When it comes to getting married to her, I believe anything is possible. Life is crazy and I’m really learning that you can never say never; so let’s see. What is meant for me will be for me. I truly believe this. So if it’s meant to be, it will be,” he said.
Speaking about his latest project titled ‘Ego’, Skales added, “Ego is a simple melody about working hard and making money.”
