HOW CAN WOMEN BEST SUPPORT EACH OTHER?

We need to encourage each other and not let each other down.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

Never stop believing in yourself, because that’s who gonna get you on top when no one starts believing in you!

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A KID? HAS ANYTHING CHANGED?

No music was always in my life. I grew up in a christian family, so gospel music.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A TEENAGER?

I became a mum at 16, so I was just doing mum duties and never really lived my teenage years just being a teenager. I became a mum while still tryna figure life out.
