Tell us a brief story on what the song is all about.
Snowflakes | The track (GENESIS),As you know, genesis is the first book of the bible rather the beginning of the bible and in this particular track, iam using the word meaning the beginning or starting point …. if u have listened to the song u would have heard where I said, “am in genesis…. make me gat to revelation” the statement or the lyrics there… says or try to mean that the love a man has for a woman or a lady…. should not be hushed hence he is still at the starting point or the beginning….therefore, the lady should not be hasteful to the point of being hard on the man I stand on my message as said in the genesis that ladies should give the man the chance to move further to the next level of revalation which is for the man to show his love because i feel love matures with time.
