MZK: Give us a little shout out to the young people and little advise for them, the young soca people coming up and the young artist, inspirational words from Kevin Little.
Kevin Little: To all the young artist nuff people tell me you know Kevin Little you cant do this and you cant do that, but Ive proved those people wrong and if you want to do this or you want to do some other job anything you want to do in life you have to self motivate, dont wait for nobody to motivate you get up and get it done. Make your own movement. Dont wait for people to tell you yeah you sound good, because telling you, you sound good or telling you your good at what you do aint going to help you. Doing it and getting it done and making progress in everything you do is very important. Be self motivated work forward.
