Dela’s message to upcoming musicians trying to make it in the industry today

“Stay true to yourself and don’t try to be like anyone else. It’s understandable to admire another artist and they can inspire you and influence your musical taste but, you should not try to duplicate what someone else is doing. They are who they are, and you can only be you. So, just stay true to yourself because that is what your fans will identify with – your uniqueness, and the honesty and sincerity of your music.”
