In a recent interview with Punch News when asked about her tussel with Davido, she opened up on the real reason behind the drawn beef between them was because Davido called her names first. Read her reply below:
“I do not want to talk about my spat with Davido or shed more light on it because I do not really know what to say. People who actually care tried to find out what really transpired between us. Davido called me names on Snapchat and I retaliated. When you say something to me, I give it back to you if I do not like it. Unfortunately, people did not hear my own side of the story before they reached their conclusions. I do not really have any problem or beef with Davido. He called me names and I called him names too. He started the whole episode by calling me a Malu, which means cow. I do not tolerate things like that from anybody” What inspired your song ‘Don’t break my heart’?
Writing a song can sometimes be personal, just as it can be about the environment .The angle I wrote the song from is that of an African woman in love, but giving a warning, saying you are everything to me, but don’t break my heart. It’s a song that people do love because it connects with everybody. If you are in a relationship, the first thing that comes to your head is that I don’t want this person to mess up. I don’t want to put my heart into it. I don’t want to do this, I don’t want to do that. It’s a common thing . But the depth in the song brought the whole message out. It’s about an African woman who is happily in love and who doesn’t want to be heart-broken.
So have you never been heartbroken? Yes I have, the song is also inspired by my tale of heartbreak and other people’s tale of heartbreaks as well.I have experienced it and others have experienced it too, so it was just amazing creating a song around it.
