Toniks said that as he started improving, he ventured in another style of music during the course of 2016 and that was with a live band. He says he did that as a way of tasting his versatility.

“In late December [2016], I performed at Roast and Rhymes, to the people who love live performances, it was a blast.”

“I’m not in any relationship this year, I’m single and only married to my music,” he said.

He revealed that he will focus more on doing collaborations with other artistes like Ykee Benda and Nutty Neithan.
