We will all agree that Lara George has become one of the most successful artistes the Nigeria’s gospel circle since the release of her first hit song ‘Ijoba Orun’ in 2007.

George was a member of the now defunct music group, KUSH, which had popular songs like ‘let’s stay together’, before they parted ways.

In a recent interview, the ‘Dansaki’ singer revealed that she went solo as a gospel artiste due to limited funds which made it quite difficult for the group to function.

She said “I was a bit upset about the KUSH break-up. I felt like I had put my whole life on hold just to accommodate KUSH but it ended that way, this made me decided never to do music again. Of course, as you know, that decision did not exactly last long”.

“Music at the time when KUSH started was a very difficult thing to do particularly for three young professionals with so many career options. It was tough keeping things together at that time because the pressure the financial uncertainty brought took its toll on us as a group and everyone started to drift apart until we were no longer able to keep things going”.
