When asked why she decided to call her own brand of Afrobeats music the Spirit genre, she says;

“I like to crack jokes a lot so in a way, I was joking (when I called it Spirit) but also I wasn’t. What I mean is that’s where my songs come from. They come from my spirit. Music is a very spiritual experience for me and that’s why I call it Spirit. It makes you feel and for me, it comes from a very pure place.”
