I wasn’t really born with a silver spoon nor a bronze spoon , I remember asking my mom to get me a personal computer but unfortunately that wasn’t going to happen becuase she was unemployed at that time , that’s until she finally managed to get a job at a local school as a clerk . She made sure I don’t get to miss out on my childhood and got me the computer box which I have been nagging for , that’s when I discovered FL Studio ” .
