Opinion on provocative dressing
Some times, the showbiz part of me wants to show off and be provocative. That doesn’t make it right but as I grow as a musician and lady, I believe you can be attractive without being over the top and provocative. Modesty is the key. When I am on stage, I can be anything without overdoing it but once I am off stage, I am a decent African woman.
Greatest physical asset
My lips.
Secret of beauty
God! I don’t do anything special. Maybe when I am getting older, after child birth and nature is changing things then I might start doing something. For now, it is quite simple. I take regular baths, moisturise my skin, drink water and eat a lot of fruits.
My selling point
My music is deep. It always has a story that people can relate with and I am very versatile.
s*xual harassment
I experience it everywhere. In the industry and the society in general.
Coping with advances from men
Just fine. I’m used to it. I guess I am becoming a professional at it.
Strength and weakness
My strength is my versatility, while my weakness is not being able to write songs in pidgin English and our local dialect but I am working on it so, it won’t be a weakness for long.
Role models
In acting, Nse Ikpe Etim, Rita Dominic, Angelina Jolie and OC Ukeje. In music, late Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, late Aliyah, Don Jazzy because he is super creative, Waje and Omawunmi. In presenting, Dolapo Oni, Juliana Ransic and Jinnie Mia because they are effortless. I love Funke Akindele too and Liz Benson back then
