Octopizzo has always talked about his close connections with his mother and it is no wonder the yearly celebrations bring nostalgic memories to him.
“A day can’t pass without me listening to it because it reminds me of where I came from and all the stuff that I went through and everything that my mum used to tell me.
“I lost her in 2003 when I was 15 and that song carries me every day,” he recalled with deep remorse,” he said in an interview after his hit single “Mama”.
“To be sincere, that’s the best song in my record of like 20 songs. Everyday, I want to make her proud and just tell her that I am here and the family is doing okay. I just want to work hard because that’s what she told me to do and I hope she’s listening,” he added.
