She was recently interviewed by Independent.ng on which one she prefer between music and acting.
People always ask me that question, I can’t choose. If I could, I would have. I love both equally, so I’m doing both. Music is difficult though because it needs a lot of funding. Music is very expensive. Acting on the other hand is not, you act, you are paid, you go. With music, you have to look for funding and all that. It’s very expensive business until you get to that peak where you blow. That’s the downside of music.Toni tones
