“I am currently in  a relationship and I am dating someone. I have been dating for a while now. It has been perfect coping with my career and relationship and I have had no problems whatsoever. My partner dare not tell me to choose between him and my career because he knows he would lose out,” she said.

The ‘Ibadi’ singer also spoke on her latest music ‘Maradona’ and the story behind it.

“My song ‘Maradona’ is partly from personal experience and I also pulled from other people’s experience. The song is about a player, a terrible womaniser and I likened him to Maradona’s football prowess. Men like different things and sometimes they go crazy in search of other things. It has happened to me and other women so I decided to sing about it. A lot of people can relate to it.

During the time I dated a guy that cheated on me, I dealt with him when I found out. Although I broke the guy’s head in the video, I just walked out the guy in real life and said goodbye to the relationship. I always bade my friend farewell because if a friend could do that to you, then that person is not your friend,” she explained.
