I am a 24-year-old, self-published poetry writer and songwriter for numerous artists in the English hip hop scene. I blew within a year from 0 to 350k Followers by posting my writings on Instagram. I live in Switzerland, but my roots are Albanian.

5. Please tell us about your book.
I recently published my first book, “In Love With Pain “which went into the top-selling Amazon charts. “In Love With Pain” is a long and grueling journey with no destination, a journey into an impetuous tempest of a broken heart, mended with ink in the form of short and long poems.
A journey of two strangers, the writer, and the reader, filled with words of love, pain, anger, and passion.
