‘‘It was a dream of mine. And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day.

1st News reports that the new EP ‘Water and Garri’ is out on various musical platforms.
The talented singer seems to have put her recent public spat with another musical diva, Seyi Shay to the side to deliver a gem. Both singers had clashed at a hair salon in the upscale Lekki area of Lagos recently. The confrontation came after years of an apparently simmering beef between both singers; with the duo having to be physically restrained during the clash.
