She made this known in her recent interview with Punch Newspaper, she said“Well, this is the real me that can still stop by and buy roasted plantain by the road side; I don’t feel uncomfortable, I am not blown away by fame because that  is not what excites me, what excites me is the music. I am happy about my celebrity status only because more people know my music and want to relate with it.”

The X3m records act also revealed that she would like to work with veteran musicians Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade and Pasuma sometime in the future, also divulged that she has always been a tomboy.


“While growing up, I was kind of a tom boy because I have three elder brothers, and from my mum I was the only girl and the last born. So I liked wearing sneakers, baggy jeans, and I was this bad girl who didn’t like too much trouble. My dad spoilt my brothers and me. We watched movies a lot, but my brothers preferred horror movies so we all watched it together. But it was fun. When I was nine years, my parents got separated and that was a really tough time for us because we had to grow up faster but we came through and we were good,” she said.
