It was so wonderful and I think that maybe he thought that it would be coming, and I would have said ‘here, sing this, and many thanks for your time’. And instead I asked what he needed, how he wanted to do things. I said, “now everything that goes through your head, I want that you forget and songs. And while you do, I shall dance in front of you”. When she came in the studio and I was still crying, came up to me and said: “You’ll be fine, call me, here’s my number”, and was very stubborn, she tried to be my friend so many times. But I was ashamed very much, I didn’t want to project all that negativity on her. Then it came to me and said, “you’re hiding”, and I said “yes, you are right, I am absolutely hiding”, and it is here that gained our friendship.
