He added that shortly after, he lost his musical prowess and had to take a break to reorganise himself. E.L said he did not seek professional help when his mental health deteriorated but instead did some soul-searching to find answers.

"Charley, time teaches you so many valuable lessons and changes you. Especially when you go through a few things. I have passed through things. It came to a point when I was in the States, and I had to start working as a food delivery guy. It was that deep."
