The music industry is growing faster than it was some years back!! The competition is getting bigger as well… so everyone is trying to come out good

It wasn’t shot in ikorodu!! Somewhere around Ogba !! The video has some fresh vibes… am sure the fans will love it
Do you think it is tough for female artists to actually be successful in Nigeria?
To an extent especially if you’re doing rap… that’s because it’s a male-dominated genre
