" All through my career, I’ve had people tell me my brand of music won’t do well in Nigeria. ‘Tweak your sound’, ‘Make it danceable’ they said. But I am glad I’ve stuck to doing what i know how to do. I am glad about the acceptance of all my singles, everything i have put out has been widely accepted even when we thought Nigerians won't accept it. Right now, Alternative Music is the new cool and i am glad to be one of the very few who hold the key to the new era of Nigerian music and i am glad that we are finally being recognised. #dearNaijaalternativeartiste your music will be heard. Don’t follow the crowd, BE DIFFERENT!" She says on IG
