Charles didn’t mince words about the influence his late father has on him when it comes to music; ‘my dad influenced my music a lot. He’s my role model. I’ve seen him write, compose and deliver his music. I’ve never been that close to anyone to see how their music is done,’ he said.

When asked his music genre, 'I wouldn’t want to have a specific genre of music. I just want to deliver my music the way I feel it. If my musical inspiration comes in reggae, I will deliver it in reggae to my fans. If it comes in blues, RnB, Afrobeat, that’s the way I will deliver it. music is music’ he said.
