In response in to all the criticism, he stayed calm. He appeared in many of the than live shows in the same appearance then and now launched another song, in the very same get-up. Rather, the latest launch of his video song “Angel” was embellished with much more of his self desired get-up.

From either of his videos, he is seen smiling, content and swinging cheerfully to his own beats.  In his second video song “Angel”, he hires a female model regardless of her suitability as a video model. He portrays drama and story of his will in each of his video releases. He is seen enjoying his own work. His attitude greatly shows that gratitude is the keystone to genuine wealth. His body language beautifully depicts the way he feels and expresses his progress towards his vision.
