She stressed the necessity of allowing artists to mature and discover themselves, implying that she may not have reached her “final form” yet.

“My first single blew up in Africa and I was overwhelmed. I got to grow up in front of everyone. We need to allow artists to grow and find themselves. So I don’t even know if this is my final form yet, but I don’t think there’s any such thing as a final form. I don’t think so.

“I think there’s eras and times and you just become better. This is the vibe now with Ayra Starr, it might not be there next year. It might be better, it might be bigger.”

“Different people from different parts of the world love my music. My voice is kind of my sound. I bring the Afrobeats to every genre I enter.”
