“I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world and heal souls and help people go through whatever they’re going through in life,” he said during his acceptance speech. “I want to thank my fans all over the world and people who follow what I do, thank you so much for believing in me. I want to thank my family and my children.”

He adds “I want to thank everyone who is on the album, from Msaki in South Africa to David Guetta, who had believed in working with a smaller artist like myself, and trusting me and trusting my ear. Pharrell (Williams), Josie, Delilah, Una Rams and everyone who is on the album.”
