How would you describe your style of music, how would you describe yourself as an artist?
 I don’t really know how to describe the style of music I am into I would like to say that I am an Afro-beat R&B singer.

Who inspires you the most- creatively and in your personal life? Well I have two big inspirations, my mother Gloria, she is the one person who can tell me how to believe in something and why I should and I believe her and go for it. My producer Excess (Bright) he is very persuasive he says one thing and I don’t even question it because I know he knows what’s best for me as an artist.


What artist/producer would you like to work with most and why?
 I really wanna work with India arie…she is a part of why I want to do music, she makes loving music so easy she sings with passion it seems it’s a way of life for her. That’s how I feel about music, I feel it, I breathe it, I dream it.  Producer’s it would be Ron Fair and Sean Garrett. Ron Fair is one of the best R&B Producers he has produced on albums like Keisha Cole’s ‘“The Way It is” and it was the best album of that year. Sean Garrett, He has produced fifteen number one singles in only seven years of producing music. That number puts him in fifth place on the Billboard list of producers with the most number one hits.

How would you describe your personal style?
Personal style as in physical appearance or music…
Well I like retro or anything vintage.

What do you enjoy most about being an African woman?
I love the colour of my skin! And I love how we are brought up, most of our African parents teach us great morals.

What advice would you give to young women who want to follow your path?
LISTEN!!! That is key, but always remember you have the key to your destiny you can listen to so much but at the end of the day the choice is yours. And jus have passion in everything you do.


How do you want to be remembered musically and generally?
I want to make a difference in society and want people to listen to my music and make a difference. Something positive like I know how to deal with this… or I heard Mona Singing in her song and she said….
