In her recent interview with Hip TV, the super star OAP & Actress stated that most songs being publicized right now are just about having fun and do not have any message they are trying to pass.
She expressed disappointment at the present state of affairs being a far cry from what was obtainable in the past.
“I’m not sure if they’re passing any message because if you are looking at the content of music, what will you say you’re buying?
