Although he never even though about making music or being on the stage performing, Smoovie said that everything just happened randomly and fast, when he started to feel inspired to make music he started writing and buying beats and had the opportunity to record his first single “All I Need” which was released 2 years ago that was 2019 I dropped my first single after spending 2 years in the USA.
