“Born In Suriname (Work)” is a new single and music video eagerly anticipated by fans and music enthusiasts alike. This release is set to continue Samora’s unique storytelling and mesmerizing musical style. She shares her thoughts on how real life translates into creating meaningful and uplifting music and recognizing a potential block as an opportunity to take time out, work on yourself, and ignite positive energy and happiness from within.

“If you look at your own life as a boat, realize that the captain is you. People sometimes try to guide you without knowing and talk you into something you don’t want to do. Take over control and find your inner strength. You will be able to follow your dreams and steer the ship on its way to success.” – Samora
