Read excerpts from her interview below!
On music in Nigeria: To me, the experience is really good. And at the same time, difficult because sometimes you will want to give out the best of you but there is no room for such. I strongly believe that the entertainment industry will find its place in terms of structure in no time, and we will not relent to attain a well-structured system. I am 100 per-cent ready to face the music and the many challenges I may encounter. I have nothing to fear. I was born here in Nigeria and I am used to the system. At present, I am launching my coming back with a big bang. I am really enthused to carve a niche for myself and affect the industry positively. My management is taking necessary steps to stamp my come back on the scene.
On Iyanya: Iyanya is a veteran in the game, he’s done so much and he was the one that said he wanted to feature in the song. I was so surprised and had to ask him if he had heard the song before and he told me there was no problem. Right now, Iyanya is more like a big brother to me.
On what makes her different from other female stars: My sound; because in my new single it sounds as if I’m rapping but I’m not a rapper. I’m trying to rebrand myself in order to stand out and be unique. Also, I will be doing more of stage performances and not just the normal studio recording.
On nudity in the industry: I don’t agree nudity is encouraging and it’s exactly what has taken over the entertainment industry because everybody wants to sell his/her song. And it seems to be working because the fans love it. I’m not saying one should get naked but you just have to give your fans the best. For instance, the way I dress when going onstage is quite different from the way I dress on a normal day. I always like to look sexy while performing and it’s a way of giving my fans the best.
