Although Feni had exhibited overseas, he had a grim time living in London. He had little income and lived in poor conditions. It was jazz music, for which he is known to have had great passion for, that kept him going. He is quoted as saying: "When I listen to jazz, I get ideas. Even in London my mind is taken back home."
