26, Hip Hop/ R& B Singer Tell us about the local music industry and how you started. I grew up in a musical environment, and my parents were in the industry for 30 years. I’ ve always loved watching them work, from producing and performing on stage and camera. I started working on my own songs around t he age of 12. Then, professionally, about f our years ago. Who in spires you? Hardworking women with ambition, a good attitude and a killer sense of style. My mum, too—she worked hard and got to where she is, even with kids. If she can do it, what ’ s stopping me? One thing that no one knows about you? I’ m very particular; things need tobe done in order and I must finish anything I start. What is empowerment to you? When someone unleashes the strength they never knew t hey had.
