She’s not a loud type, she’s not the type who lobbies for something, and she might be useful because she has been in the game for a while. She has done nothing more than entertaining since age 15 till now.

They believe my contribution is highly important at this stage when Osun State now has a new Executive Governor who is very interested in entertainment. You will agree with me that Adeleke’s family is all about breaking new grounds, making good deals and they see big potential in entertainment.
