Coming from a small town, he wants to share his life and everything he has to say in his songs. “I want to let people know I have a lot to say through my music I’m here to stay, so listen up, I’m making real R&B music taking people back to how music used to be, that what makes me stand out I have an old soul and type no one can touch.” His most highlighted moment in his career was when he was contacted by a DJ in the Uk to spin his records, because he genuinely liked Dezzae’s music. He has faced many challenges over the years, the death of his mother in December of 2014 was the hardest thing he’s been through. He watched her take her last breath at age 44, he was only 24. “My mother was my everything. By the grace of god, my friends and family and the power of music is how I made it though loving her.
