Valy had this to say about his AWCC Ambassadorship: "I grew up with two things in my hands, a musical instrument and a mobile phone connected to AWCC. When I was a teenager if I wasn't singing then I was talking to friends over the AWCC network. It's fantastic to now be associated with AWCC, a company that I feel a real connection with."
