VYPER: Let’s talk about your solo career into V.I.P. Why did you create this project and what’s the concept?
V.I.P: I want to exceed myself as an artist and collaborate with many different people all over the world. The concept of V.I.P is circling around past lives and the afterlife.
VYPER: You did your two first European gigs in Sweden. What did you think about those two gigs? Would you like to browse more European countries on day, including France?
V.I.P: It made me happy that many fans who attended the first I-ai- live in Sweden in January came back. When I entered the stage at the first concert, my anticipation was high, it was the best! I felt that we connected and everyone was very cute. Me and the Swedish opening act Crestillion became good friends. At the second concert in Uppsala I wore a yukata on stage for the first time and there were many people showing me their smiles. I was very happy.
