My heart's desire is to be recognised in Nigeria.
I don't want to be a big star. I just want to get my message across.
I am 100% there when I'm doing what I'm doing when I'm onstage and recording. I don't ever want to look back at any moment and say to myself that I felt uncomfortable with who I am.
