It is not known about the rest of his life, but he once said that his main musical role model was Freddie Mercury.
"My role model and hero in life is Freddie Mercury from Queen. I can't even come close to his songwriting skills, but I learned his stage presence and abilities from the videos I watched. I'm currently number 1 in the UK, so if I get the chance to go there, I want to meet the members of Queen and tell them how much their music has inspired me,'' he said.
