“We, as the youth, need to understand certain basic principles. I have a huge platform and influence because of my music so I’ll be shooting myself in the foot if I do not tackle issues of this nature,” she added.
She said “Kelvynboy has a story” to tell, and that was why he was featured on the album.
He has been through “thick and thin and came out victorious. I do not see anyone better-placed, coupled with the afrobeat feel I needed on the sound.”
