Aramide is a successful Afro-soul/Jazz artiste. Recently, she won an award for the Best Female Artiste in West Africa beating the likes of Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade and Seyi Shay at the recently concluded AFRIMA
In an interview with Vanguard, Aramide talks about her career, marriage amongst other issues.
On people raising eyebrows because she won the awards, she said;
About that, I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I work very hard as well. I respect everyone that was nominated alongside me, like I said; everyone is entitled to their opinion, so that’s it. I didn’t particularly feel upset, I just felt so happy to be recognised, that’s what it was all about. I wasn’t dwelling on people’s opinion or ideas; for me, what it meant was that I’ve been recognised, so I have to work harder. I didn’t see it coming; I didn’t even think I was going to be nominated.
