When asked by Ada, Mr Love said his nana, Audrey Hollis, inspired him to become involved with music.

“From a young age she’s always been a bubbly soul,” Mr Love said. “Singing, dancing, praising the Lord and she’s always been that big inspiration to me to keep going and keep striving.” On Renaissance, she is featured on the interlude, to which Mr Love added, “That song is very touching to me.”
