What’s your favourite DM you’ve ever received from someone about your music?
One time, a young Nigerian girl told me my music made her feel proud to be Black and that she was capable of doing anything. That made everything feel worth it.

What can you say about the Lagos music scene?
It’s growing and changing. It’s evolving past just Afrobeat, and there are so many new artists with new sounds. Just showing us that people are not one-dimensional and I love that.
