“Joining Mr Siva Chandran’s team of Global Judges for VIMA comes naturally since I have seen this program grow from its infantile stage to a global network. It is a great medium for all musical artists and models worldwide who are looking to be heard and seen on a grassroots platform.This comes at no out of pocket cost to the artist but can offer them a chance for a global audience to see or hear their talents.

For VIMA, it is my opinion that best is yet to come!”
