“I started with DJing. I was in the studio trying to get my vocals, and I decided to figure things out in the studio, and I started doing DJing classes with Lebza the Villain. I was learning from different people. I was part of Soulistic; it was my management, but I’ve since parted ways with them.” she said

After nine long years of being recognised solely for her role in Scandal, she has decided to take a well-deserved break from the acting scene.“It was something I needed to do personally for myself. I needed to release the character by not doing that type of work and focus on music. But I’m back attending auditions. I miss acting, I’m crossing my fingers for something,” she said
