Her father, MacDuama was a recording musician under the defunct EMI records.
She is also dreams of carting away the N7.5million prize money.
How she wants to achieve that, she revealed in this chat.
You are the youngest, strong and you sing from the inside…
Well, by the grace of God, he has given me the gift of singing and it’s been in me
Does singing run in your family?
Yes. Everyone in my family sings, including my father who was a professional singer but my mother is not a professional singer.
Who is your father?
My father was an artiste with the name Mac Duama.
How did you get into this competition?
I got into the Nigerian Idol through a friend. I went for the screening and later got a call to come for the audition.
Then I knew there was something in store for me. I went on and gradually went through it all until I got to the first four.
How does that make you feel?
I’m happy. Every stage that I pass through gets me closer to being the Nigerian Idol. Right now that I’m in the top four, I’m a step closer to being the Nigerian Idol.
After the Nigerian Idol, are you continuing your career in music?
I’m not only going to continue it, my generation will carry on too.
What are your chances of winning?
I’m not going to say I have a 100% chances of winning, I have more than 100% chances because I don’t
just have what it takes to win, I also have lot of support from family, friends and my fans too.
What will you do with the money if you win?
Paying my tithe is non-negotiable. And I’m going to settle some personal issues and get into school, pursue my career and charity.
