 Being the son of a legend has not assured 29-year-old Genius of success in the music industry. After eight years on the jazz music scene, the singer-cum-poet is yet to lay claim to music stardom.  But like the lion cub lost to its mother’s comfort and protection, he bravely predicts a bright future.
