A couple of years later, things started to turn and my dreams started coming true, so, minsan kasi, hindi pa yun mangyayari ngayon because there’s such a thing as the right timing. If it’s not the time for you yet, it only means that you’re not yet ready for what you’re about to receive.”Lola Amour’s lead vocalist Pio Dumayas brought his unique perspective to the G Creator Con as he delved into the topic of ‘Overcoming Mental Block’ and generously shared his creative process.
