How did you start making music?
I am singing since I’m able to think. Started to play the piano by the age of 6. Later joined our church choir singing gospels. From the age of 16, I began gaining my first studio experiences and working throughout the years on different projects in which I was rather more in the background whether it was a band or a studio project. So concerning my own music, as a woman, it was also hard back in the days to find a good team to work with who is ambitious to work with you on the results you want to have. Am glad I found them today, so from this year on I started to work on my upcoming EP.
What made you get into modeling?
Making money lol. It’s not like I’m really into modelling because I love it or was looking for a career in this business. To be honest, I don’t really like it but in due times it paid my bills, so I took few opportunities.
Where are you from?
Am from Nigerian and Polish origin, born and raised in Germany
Growing up who did you listen to?
Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Destiny’s Child.
Did you always know you wanted to get into music?
Yes, that was always my number one dream. My parents didn’t really support it, which made me finish my studies as a translator first.
What inspires your music?
Basically Love, Life, Good vibes and some inspirational artists of course.
What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
What’s your most favorite city to visit?
Paris or Marrakech
What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
New York is on the bucket list
Any advice you would give to an up and coming musician?
Let your dreams be your no. 1 motivation, if you can dream it you can achieve it. And just do it, no matter what circumstances might keep you from getting your things done.
Tell us the motivation behind your next release.
Currently, I am working on my EP which hopefully will be released in early 2019. Until then,
