‘’ At the beginning, I went to anonymous church here in Rwanda, so that i can be member of choir. I remember when I got out, a Ugandan man called me upon and said that he liked what I do and that he would do something to help. Then, I started talks with one of Ugandan journalist and concluded that African gospel singers would work jointly as a unity,’’ she revealed.
She added:’’ He connected me with a Nigerian, and later, things went so fast. I came to know Djs from Zambia, Malawi and eventually this project appeared. It was the idea of the Zambian, Timothy- who wanted female rappers to get together. The next was my part to record my voice regarding a beat they sent to me, and I had to send back my recording for them to do arrangement,’’ she explained.
