Performing at a movie premiere is one thing but when you are performing a song that contributed to the soundtrack of the movie – it’s extra special.

Mo Abudu, the executive producer of “Royal Hibiscus Hotel” called me about 8 months ago to write a pop song for one of the scenes – a song that would be ‘sung’ (mimed) by one of  the main characters in the movie. Writing a ‘Nigerian pop song’ was a great challenge to take up because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me confident in being more adventurous with songwriting.

I had a lot of fun writing “Loving You” but what I didn’t realize was that I would have even more fun performing it.
