In the candid conversation, he also opens up about choosing his stage name, how he nearly set up his own stage school, along with explaining how music was never on his radar.
"I went straight to 'J' in the alphabet, I don’t know why but Jafaris stood out and when I looked up the meaning it meant ‘a deeper need to inspire’. That’s something I kind of resonated with," the Found My Feet hitmaker said about giving up his initial stage name.
When asked about his life goal, he said: "To facilitate for other people’s life goals."
