The 35-year-old started her professional music career in 2005 and in 2012 signed a record deal with Empire Mates Entertainment, but later she quietly exited the label.

The ‘Toh bad’ crooner in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo finally disclosed why she left EME.

According to her, the record label wanted to promote her based on her sex appeal as a woman, and she wasn’t comfortable with.

“When a female artiste wants to do music, the first thing any man will think of as a business man is be sexy…I know I’m sexy but I am also smart, I love God but it is also important to find a person or people who understands that….

I think that to be fair on the label, a lot of times, they just didn’t see it, they are business men and did things as far their knowledge carried them…I should have been marketed as who I was and not just as a girl that is pretty and that can sing.

Leaving EME wasn’t a happy event….it was not happy in the sense that when you invest time, your blood and all into something, you want to see it yield results …but it didn’t happen as expected…….it was sad for me cos I feel I should have done enough more while there…we are still friends now though, I am friends with everyone”, she said.
