On the interview with NET TV, she shared the ordeal she went through with one of her childhood inspirations Oyeka Onwenu and that was the only meeting she has had with her. The Lagos born singer had opened a show for the legendary singer (Onyeka) and stuck around to take a photo.

According to her, sadly, the meeting did not go as planned as she was having none of it at all.

“I was still really new in the industry and I opened the stage for her, I got down and decided to take a picture with her, as soon as I got there she went off on me.
“She said ‘Don’t touch me’. It was like the worst experience I have had in my life. Everyone was staring at me. I don’t think she knew I opened the show for her,”

“I even knelt down to greet her, and she said okay come and take the picture. For a moment, I felt bad, but the good thing about that kind of situation is that it makes you work really hard. I lost my respect for her after that event, I don’t think I would see her and say hello. But It was a long time ago. It is what it is now, I have moved on,” the Afro-soul singer concluded.
