I have always dreamt of being in the Entertainment industry ever since I was young and every bit of sound has pushed me to learn more about Music as well as the Entertainment world in general. I must say, my biggest inspiration to start up Bronxi Entertainment was my love for music but also for seeing people achieve what they do best.
