What is your definition of love?
Love is great interest and pleasure and strong affection for something or someone.
All your songs are about love. Who is this person?
Not all my songs are about love. I have sung about other issues in our society. My music is not about my personal life because in most cases, I use the help of songwriters for the best music ideas.
But isn’t your new song, amazing that you just shot in Dubai, about him?
Amazing is my new reggae song shot in Durban, South Africa, not Dubai. It is not about anyone in my life.
Did you go to dubai with your boyfriend?
I travelled to Dubai with other musicians to perform and I also did shopping for my fashion store.
Is your boyfriend marriage material and do you see yourself as his wife?
Yes, he is and yes I do.
Are there arab-money guys drooling over you?
How many guys hit on you in a week?
I cannot count because they are quite many.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
What do you find most attractive in a man?
Sense of humour, honesty, smartness, patience and God-fearing.
What is the biggest mistake men make with women?
Some women believe in equality and men make the mistake of believing they are always above women.

Your favourite body part?
My pretty long legs

To keep growing spiritually
How does it feel to have risen this far within so short a time?
It feels good and I thank my fans who have helped me get this far. They have been there for me by loving and supporting me, which has kept me going.
