Owami whose second name is Melody can tell that there is still more coming her way by judging from how her album has been well received. She says people cannot stop talking about this project which is a mixture of amapiano and house music.

Speaking about this album, Owami revealed that there were may songs she had made and most of them were produced by her capable hands but she only had to pick a few. She says she only selected those songs which were produced by Wash and Arthur because she did not want to rush things with her first album.
