The lanky singer told Saturday Beats that God means well for us. He said it is inevitable to go through pain in life but a person must see past his current predicament and embrace life.
He said, “Good Life is a sequel to the single I did, Good Time. And Good Life portrays that God means well for you, irrespective of what you’re going through at the moment. We all go through different travails, but the fact that the grace of life is still available to you means you have a life so good. You may be complaining of hunger, joblessness and financial challenges, but when you see those whose legs are hung at the orthopaedic hospitals, you’ll realize that you have a good life after all.”
