In an interview with The Net NG , the “I Wish” songstress also speaks on her music career, her inspiration and the downsides of being a celebrity.
On still being single: “I don`t know why, but I just feel God has a way of doing things. I have so much on my hands now, let that matter rest now, let me not go and marry now before my husband will say he wants pounded yam, cooked by his wife, not by a maid. Then I will leave everything I am doing and I will be pounding yam. But when somebody who understand my kind of person and my job comes along, then it will be easier for me. After all the troubles of the day, the traffic, somebody getting you angry, there should be that one person who can calm you. Everybody would love to have somebody as a companion, so do I.”
On life as a single mother: “It is beautiful, something a lot of people won`t understand when I say it. They think I’m encouraging people to do it. It is beautiful, there are so many things that kid has done for me. I appreciate everything that God has given me.”
On if her daughter can be a singer like her: “Yes, she can. She is a Nicki Minaj fan. It is her choice really, my job is just to advise her, not to choose.”
On the downsides of being a celeb: “I am very sensitive person, very emotional person though I tend to channel most of these emotions to my music. So sometimes when I get angry, I will just hold myself. I am very emotional and people don’t understand that we are human beings also, that what makes people angry makes us angry also. Like one time I tweeted the picture of my mother and somebody said she is as ugly as you. It is not a problem if you have beef with me, but don`t let it get to people you do not know. My mum is a mother of five, she is a respectable woman, and that her child is an artiste doesn’t mean somebody should insult her or transfer an aggression on her.”
