New Skin

Zohad Reza Chowdhury gets candid about the lesser known things about him

If you could flip a switch and be someone else for a day, who would it be?
Right now, I wish I was Brandon Boyd from Incubus for a day. He’s just the most amazing singer-songwriter. He’s one of my favourites!

What’s one view in life you hold that might come as a surprise to your fans?
Don’t believe everything you see or read on social media. Things can be fabricated so easily these days. Do your own research, or wait for the truth to come out.

What is one principle in life you abide by, come rain or shine?
Based on my personal experience, something that really sticks out to me is ‘Never give up.’ Whatever it is you want to do, just don’t give up. 

Other than being a musician, what else do you most identify as?
I am a football fanatic. Most of my conversations on social media are about football. And, yes, if you want to narrow it down, I’m a die-hard Man United fan.

What’s your most used app when you have your Z Flip5 open?
I do the same thing, whether it’s the flip or the fold. I guess WhatsApp is my most frequently used app. WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook – I’m constantly flipping through these three apps.
