I want to be involved in things that speak to the human heart and just proves that I can be doing African music or my style of Nigerian music in a Swedish film and it’s still telling the same story and we’re still understanding it speaking different languages” she said.

The performing artist’s music has been described as "neo afro folk". Some have called it hypnotic because of the soothing tunes she plays on her hang.
