Virgo, who is known for his effortless hits, System, Cyaa Sleep, Dark Skin Girl, Who Feels It Knows It, Wanna Go Home and more, says not only is he excited about his musical future, but also about the future of reggae music.
"I have a long way to go, when I look at the major achievements of the reggae artistes before me; that is definitely something to aspire towards and that's what I'm focusing on right now. And apart from myself, there are a lot more promising young artistes, so I think it's a great future for reggae as long as we continue to work hard and put in the effort," he said.
