I got Adekunle Gold through his manager with the help of my boss. For the song, I decided to work with that love at first sight kind of concept because it is like a lot of people tend to love in a very funny way and I understood love in my own way so I decided to express my understanding of love. Why I chose Adekunle Gold, I needed someone whose sound is really similar to the sound of the song and Adekunle Gold has been my friend for a very long time so I had him listen to the song and then he liked it and I thought after listening to his own music he has released so far Shade, Orente and so on I thought he was right for the song, the sound was so perfect for the song and all I guess I made the right choice. What has been the comment from people since you released the song? It has been really nice I was actually surprised at the reception because after winning Nigerian idols in 2014, I did got signed into a label that seem to be one of my major release and the response quite interesting it was very encouraging.

Recently, I read one comment on Linda Ikeji saying “why is her neck his long?” and I was just like well that is because I am a model I had to pick something good from it because the truth is this is what they feel it is ok to express yourself. I really do appreciate every sincere comment it is only going to make me better but as for my my long neck I love it and it’s really pretty. What will you say is the unique selling point? Like I said before it is my stature and my voice so a lot of people will say I am too small but on the other hand, I am also mighty. It is an addition am really happy for that.
