There is a connection to France. That is where I got my first record deal. I was born there,” the singer said.

My father studied cinematography there and he wanted to come back to make Nigeria better, I grew up here, I grew up in Lagos, but somehow, I don’t know if it’s destiny, something else took me to France and I've been going back there.

“I speak French, I won't say fluently,” she also said.
