One day while at home , sitting in a cepep shed,singing “Rajin Jheem Jheem Jhoom” he was told by some guys sitting beside him that he could not be a Chutney Soca singer since he was of African decent.Moses however believed otherwise and started training his voice to sound like an East Indian and started looking at all the Bollywood movies that were released,movies such as “Dil ka Rishta, Andaaz, Zinda Dil, Raja Hindustani, Chalte Chalte just to name a few.His favourite musical instrument is the dholak and his favourite singer is Udit Narine and Krishna Das.Moses also studied Christianity, Islam and Hinduism on the more Esotheric side.He also enjoys golfing when he has free time.

Moses told us that,“On the night of 2009 Chutney Soca Finals I was there in skinners park. I went back stage without a backstage pass just to see Kenneth Salick. When he finished delivering his song “Radica”,I was the first person he walked into, I told him he would win tonight and I also told him that next year I wanted to be like him.” Later that year while going to University I was in situation that inspired me to write the”Indrani”,which became a hit.
