Your very first work as an artiste?
My very first single is In The Music. I wrote the song myself and it was produced by Cobhams Asuquo.

My first day on stage was during West Africa Idol in 2007. I had been on stage before but it was quite different. It was very good but I was nervous. Anytime I want to go on stage, I’m still very nervous but I think it’s one of the things that make a good performer.

First time in labour room?
It was in June 2011. It was beautiful. It was God that just did it for me. I had already planned everything I wanted, but at the end of the day, I forgot everything. I forgot the breathing for contraction, I just dey do my own dey go. I gave birth in America and by the time the pain started I was speaking Pidgin English to the nurse. I didn’t spend more than four hours during labour. God is faithful.
