The ‘Wa Wa Alright’  hitmaker also observed that rap music is  being looked down upon in Nigeria, stating that only two percent of the country’s population really appreciates rap music.

“Rap will always be a looked down upon as a music genre in Nigeria. The truth is that only two percent of the country’s population really appreciates rap music for what it is. Being a female rapper in Nigeria puts you under so much pressure, but I won’t be switching genres when I return. I just want to release my new album as a surprise. I am not signed on to any records label because I run my own label and won’t be signing on any artiste for now,” she said.
