“But that’s it, I know that today is important, I don’t think that the platforms are going to lose importance, on the contrary, they are going to have more relevance, but I had the blessing of being born in a time when they did not even exist and That never stopped humanity. I do not detract from them, I think they will become more and more important, but being important does not make them indispensable.“The most important thing an artist has through managers, PR and others is to reach the public and today there are millions of doors to reach,” he added.
He recognizes that each of these platforms maximizes the work of artists, many of them have even had viral hits due to the immediacy they can handle, but for him, Far from focusing on followers or having its songs be the most listened to, Kalimba seeks to reach the hearts of many people.
