She recently revealed that several musicians never wanted to work with her on the project.
According to her, she wanted Mr. Eazi and Tekno on it, but her wish never came true for reasons she cannot explain.
She added that God’s time is the best for everything, so she would not dwell on what could’ve happened.
Her words, “A lot of artistes did not want to work with me. I don’t know if it was because of my musical credibility that they felt was a risk for them or they just didn’t believe in me. I really struggled to get artistes and every single one of these artistes on this album, I’m just so grateful because they are the ones that came through for me.”
“There are certain artistes I wanted on this album. I really wanted Mr Eazi on this album, I wanted Tekno on this album. There are certain people I wanted but it just couldn’t happen. having said that, I just believe that God’s time is the best.”
