However, she added another feather to her cap by releasing her first musical single, a track, ‘It’s Our Time’. Listening to the track, many could not believe that it was sang by a newcomer to music. It became a major hit on television stations and some radio stations in the country. Some of those who heard the song felt, well, maybe she just tried her hand on that and it would end there. After the song, people started asking when would the next one come, or has she ran out of ideas?

Another hit in the making, it also followed the genre of the others, motivational. “I had this project, a Mechanical and Electrical Engineering drawing project which had given me sleepless nights.

If you lay your bed in the morning, you can still change the way you will lie on it in the afternoon before the night comes. It is the afternoon that determines the night. These two principles form the focus of the song.”

Unlike many others who will claim music run in their family, for her this wasn’t so. However, she has come to see music as an integral part of her life so much so that once in a while she sits down compose and sing songs all by herself. Speaking on her songwriting prowess having written many now, she says they come to her naturally. ‘They come as inspirations from God,’ she revealed. It is God using her to pass a message across. ‘Look at this last one. I had the inspiration and wrote around 1.00am in the morning. Indeed, I wrote three songs that night and after looking at them, sent them to my producer who picked ‘I Can Make It’ and that’s why it is out…
