When he started singing officially in 2017, it was a difficult time for him as he was facing problems related to his throat, which used to pain every time he tried to sing or even talk. It went as far as doctors suggesting him to stop singing at all, but passion is above all the pain.
He kept on singing because his love for music was too strong to be forgotten. He says that he continued singing, and the pain eventually disappeared. “I am happy that I didn’t give up on my dream with that alone you can tell that I am focused and determined”, says D. Policy, telling about how he overcame such a hard time. This can be a huge inspiration for all those people who are facing likewise problems; giving up is never a solution.
He calls out onto his fans to tell them that they should do what they love the most and leave everything else on the process and in the end, everything will pay off, just the way you deserve it.
