As the young Nigerian Pop princess gets ready to drop her first debut album we catch up with her for an Interview.

Where are you from?
Im from Queens NewYork

So tell us about your style of music.
My style of music is very hip hop and pop influenced with soulful and r an b influences as well.

What inspired you into a music career?
I started singing and writing at a very young age.In high school I was surrounded with all types of music.From classical opera to New wave so naturally it became a part of my everyday life.My grade school teacher really inspired me as well with his passion and dedication to music came my growth and understanding of why music was a huge necessity in my everyday life as a career.

What are your Musical Influences?
When you ask me what my influences are ill respond with novels,friends and poetry and and everyday life experiences.if you ask me who i will respond you with creative minds such as Peter Frampton, Whitney Houston,Janice Joplin,Dinah Washington,Paul McCartney,and more recent would be Robyn and Janet Jackson.

What goals did you have in mind when you first decided to do music and what ways did you go about it?
Well initially my goals were to become as familiar as possible with all genres of music and who the best were at the genres they were in, But now for me its about growing vocally and opening my mind to different styles of music and combining new styles that people might feel don't necessarily work together and thinkin outside of the box as far as sound might go.

Was your family supportive about your choice in a music career? If so how?
They've always supported my talent and drive in the music world.they always explained to me why it is essentially to have a back up plan but also keep in mind that it wouldn't be easy and anything you want to be the greatest in involves a great deal of work and dedication

So tell us more about the album.
Im very proud of the amount of work that went into creating this album and i look forward to showcasing it to the world.Many of the songs were thoughts and ideas that came together without production behind it at first but after explaining my ideas ont he direction ii wanted to go to my producer he pretty much worked around my style and vibe.As a listener you might even get a feel of a few artists you may be familiar with such a Wyclef, Akon, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey,Whitney Houston, Ciara, and Robyn.It;s got a soulful as well as pop feel to it with hints of hip hop and R an B as far as swag and lyrics.The bass and drum lines will definitely have you wanting to get up and movc and maybe even put a smile on your face.

Why did you decide to call it "The Runway"?
Well being that I am very familiar with the modeling world I decided to find a way to include both industries.I have a love and passion for modeling almost as much as music so i chose with this particular album to dedicate m.being in front of people and bearing your soul is so nerve racking.Eveyone no matter who you are has been nervous,afraid or self conscience at some point in your life and that exactly what this album is about.learning who you are as a person and being completely comfortable with your self. Because once you love yourself people will naturally want to love you too.

So in your opinion what do you bring to the music industry with this album that makes you stick out?
I hope that I can bring a fresh new sound and feel to what people perceive music to be.I am all about beneficial changes for the better an hopefully this album does that..Originality and essence are what I strive for when creating and writing new songs and music
How do you want your listeners to remember you? what would be your legacy?
I guess only time can really reveal that..I mean everyone wants to be remembered

So tell us what is the wierdest thing a fan or anyone in the industry has said to you?
I mean what is your definition of weird [laughs], you know I feel every question is relevant to each fan.i guess wierd for me wouldn't really fit in my career choice because what you might see as wierd may be enlightening and relatable to someone else.

How do you personally feel about the album?
I personally am so proud on what this album developed into.It's got a little bit of everything we all love.From hip hop to R an b to soul to .The album takes you through different stages of my growth and love for music and writing.you can sing to it dance to it but most importantly you can vibe with it on so many different levels.its doesn't matter your race gender or background.the album says things about life love respect and weakness and strengths as an individual.
Are there any places you have dreams of performing at?
Yes, Greece

Why?
The people ,the culture the history.I want to experience being a part of all of that and more.Possibly even taking there appreciation of music with mine and combining the two
