Opanka stressed that his focus is not much on awards.
To him, being able to inspire others is okay.
“If I’m able to inspire people, win souls and get genuine love from fans, that is my award,” he said.
“I don’t need someone’s validation to know that I’m the best, and I feel like no human being needs to wait for anyone’s validation. It is just an institution that they have set up, so if they decide to pick some names and I’m not included, I respect that, but I believe in my craft, and people give me genuine feedback so if I’m able to inspire people, that is more than an award to me because I’ve achieved my purpose,” Opanka added.
