She’s one of the few female musicians who regularly pierced to the headlines with either her music or lifestyle. She was really born for this;
In 2015, Bullet of Ruff N Smooth fame had discover the next true queen through a friend; Ogee the MC. She debuted into mainstream with the single ‘Dancefloor’. At the age of 19, she had become a star with hit song ‘Kupe’. In 2017, she became the most watched Ghanaian female artiste on YouTube. The same year, she also had a nationwide hit ‘Poison’.
If you’re an avid GhKings reader, you’d realise that she constantly popped up as an artiste tipped to rub shoulders with the likes of Shatta Wale and Sarkodie in 2018. She had become the people’s favourite!
