Hello Maya! Congrats on the new release. How does it feel to have new music coming out? Is it still exciting as in the beginning?
It is more exciting every time. The sense of excitement and anticipation grows with each release. I put time, effort and creativity into always crafting something unique whether in my audios or in my music videos, so I am always eager to share it with my audience.
What can you tell us about Taqa Egabiya? What brings you positive energy?
“Taqa Eabiya” as a song is full of positivity, fun lyrics and fun vibes. I really do get some positive energy whenever I listen to it. My own positive energy comes from my daughter, to be honest.
