In an interview with Punch, Ego speaks on her childhood, music career, relationship with her former band leader, Lagbaja.

On the toughest moment of her career

I thought it would be an easy transition for me because I had been in the industry for a while, but it didn’t turn out that way. I assumed that people already knew me but getting shows was quite challenging. I had to humble myself and go back to the drawing board. And by the grace of God, I’ve been able to overcome that.

For a long time, I had to move away from under Lagbaja’s shadow. People always referred to me as Lagbaja’s singer, and I wanted to carve a niche for myself as a solo, independent artiste.

I understand why people would always refer to that, but I need to be known by my own brand identity and face a different direction.

When I left Lagbaja’s band, it was on peaceful terms. There was no fighting or hard feelings; I just felt it was time for me to start a new phase.
