“From young age, i had always wanted to be a singer but my parents insisted that i went to school. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer, engineer, doctor etc. So after i got a first degree in Business Administration, i decided to do music but my parents still insisted on me going the university. I would tell them ‘but Beyonce didn’t go to the university, Rihanna didn’t, so why should i?’ and they would say, this is Africa. So i went back to get a second degree in music.”
On early sex
