Speaking about her mental health, she says, “Oh yes. See, I don’t even joke with my mental health. Anything that starts to give me negative vibes, I step away from it. I take time. I move away. Do you understand? I don’t accommodate negativity, because you have to understand, the fans are your fans.
“They love you. But to love them back, you have to love yourself and you have to be in the right mind frame. So when I’m not feeling the energy, I just step away, take care of myself and come back.”
She also says, “So for ‘Dad’s Song,’ it was only right to respect the man that brought me to the world. In Yoruba we’d say , which means that he brought me to the world and he didn’t just bring me, he cared for me, he made sure that my future was set.
“He worked hard, built a legacy, and even in death, I was still very much lucky, I could still go to school.
