I acquired the habit of singing and reading my bible. What are your words to live by? Facts don’t care about your feelings. What’s your biggest achievement? I’d say having my song ‘Fierce’ on MTV BASE Top ten charts for six months, still tops every other thing I have done. #OrangeCityz #BBNaija #BBNaijaLockdown #glamcityz #naija #bigbrothernigeria
