Since the lockdown has stretched for more than half of the year, Shanti has been very concerned about his plans that got affected. As an artist pursuing a lot of his dreams, he thought he won’t be able to execute them any time soon. However, Shanti shifted his perspective and decided to move forward and get back to work.
The long quarantine period gave Shanti more time to think. Shanti shared a realization of his regarding the need to keep going no matter what. “Na-realize ko na hindi laging nasa limelight ang buhay ng artist… dapat may iba pa akong pagkakaabalahan bukod sa music.”
“Nagkaroon po ako ng time na matapos ‘yong mga pending ko na kanta sa record label ko at mas natutukan ko po ‘yong business side ng music na gusto kong pasukin, which is ‘yong clothing line ko,” Shanti shared.
Shanti also expressed his passion for event production, in addition to his clothing line. “Gusto kong pasuking ‘yong magpa-event, ‘yong ako magpo-produce kasi naisip ko na kaya ko pala mag-self produce ng event tulad ng music video launch.”
Having more time on his hands because of the lockdown, Shanti grabbed the opportunity to collaborate. “Meron kaming nagawang music nitong lockdown, ‘yong Lutang; nagkaroon kami ng time ng mga kababata kong rapper sa Cavite, sila Bry Mnzno, Buddahbeads, at Ejac.”
Shanti is grateful for the extra time he has, as he was able to pursue his passion projects. Talking about being part of this year’s Coke Studio, Shanti looked back on his humble beginnings and reflected on where he is now, being able to work with fellow artists in the music industry.
