This is not the first time for Phoenix to get this kind of opportunity as in 2018 he qualified to travel to Canada but couldn’t because of family issues. But this year he says he aims to go there as he already arranged his visa.
“I have managed to get my visa and I am leaving on the 27th,” he told Mams Music Gallery. “I also need some financial help from anyone who can help me cover travel and accommodation costs.
“So far I have managed to collect around 14k and all in all I need around 21k to cover everything.”
