The "Soke" hitmaker continued: "I am just a 25-year-old who has been through more than any 25-year-old should have to, therefore takes life 1 day at a time and tries to make the best of things."

He then went on to encourage his fans to love themselves and each other.

"This is my REAL LIFE, don't let your life be determined by how anyone lives theirs. You are Special and Amazing. You would not have been put on this earth if there wasn't a Reason. I love you all. Love yourselves and each other. The World is Yours!"
