In a recent chat with Nonye Ben-Nwankwo for Punch, the 3 time BET Awards nominee, talks about her successful music career, the BET awards and her style.

Enjoy excerpts from the interview

On handling her successful career:

I am myself. It is just that being a popular person doesn’t permit me to do some certain things I would have loved to do. I would have just been a regular girl next door and take walks on the streets. I like walking. But now, I can’t just wake up and start walking. I may be lynched.

On the ingredients of her successful career

It is definitely God, a team that doesn’t sleep and passion. Whether there is money or no money, it is the passion that keeps you going. I just focus on being me. Whatever I have achieved so far, they weren’t my aim. My aim was just to become better every day at what I do. Somehow, people noticed. I have been into music for about seven years professionally. There have been lows and highs but I keep learning every day and meeting new people. I have been winning awards, going for different shows and travelling the world. Here we are today at BET Award and hoping one day, it will be for the Grammy Award. It is a crazy ride but I am thankful that God chose me.

On her hair:

When it comes to hairstyle, this is what I know. I don’t know how to take care of weaves and hair extensions. If a stylist isn’t there, my hair would turn out horrible, I would look like somebody who just got hit by a car. I may have everything I need to make the hair look good but once I am the one doing it, it can never work. I decided to go natural and since then, I am fine. I sleep and wake up and just do a bit of touch up and I am fine. It suits me and I love it.
