How has been the audience’s reception to Naona Bado single?

So far, so good! It has given me the drive to work on more music. I plan to live, sing, pray, love and be happy in my lifetime. In fact, my mantra has always been: “Live to Love, Learn and Laugh plenty in between.”

Describe the kind of a woman that you are.

My personal trademark is ‘me’. I am beautiful, a lover of God, and the awesome life He has blessed me with. I have faith that Allah made no mistakes when He created us, and thus we should demonstrate a confidence in that faith to do whatsoever we desire and are capable of doing. My strongest trait is that I believe I am brilliant and have a big heart.
