He attributed his success to God who he said has guided him throughout the process.

“God is control and he told me what to do, and I followed his instructions and executed once again,” the overwhelmed Ramon G explained.

He single-handedly composed and penned the lyrics to his song “Mass Intentions”.

He gave some insight to the meaning of the song during the interview which he said was inspired by the need to experience familiar party vibes after the dreariness of the pandemic.

“Every time we come out now, because of COVID and all of that, we have mass intentions and we gon’ make mass everywhere. If a bottle drop on the ground, we making mass!”
