Whether Daniel Joao ison billboards or on some sexiest list (and winning the damn thing), he is making hits in his studio apartment in the city. Taking it a step further by doing exactly what models in the 21st century seem to be doing; expanding horizons!
Think about it! Anyone who’s anybody is making a brave decision and doing something else to keep sharing themselves with the world. Look at Jaden Smith, besides being Will Smith’s son he is an actor and a musician. Due Lipa; 21 year old English model who is climbing the charts everywhere with her music. It wasn’t a surprise to hear that Joao is not only HEAT’s Manwatch Competition winner, but one promising musician.
“I’m excited about this new journey because I have found myself,” he says casually between looks before running back on set, for what seemed to be less than 3 minutes. That’s how in tune he is with his body – he knows his angles very well. “That’s why I want to share this part of me, because no matter where you are from, everyone’s story has a sort of generic flow which starts from struggle and escalates to success.
LISTEN TO THE TRACK HERE:
As a musician, your responsibility is to let someone in to your life, take them through it all and leave them feeling something, anything”
Why the title Bonang or nah?
I was inspired by her success and how she goes about her career. Before I began working my way to the industry, I made it my mission to meet her. Fast forward to when I was working on a few projects that afforded me the opportunity to meet her. Each time I saw a determined woman. Most importantly, the world could do with more career driven women!
