What was the experience like shooting your video and what should we look forward to in the next video? It was a great experience, I learned new things about myself as an artist that day, I felt extremely comfortable with the acting while shooting and got very good direction from the production team. My next video will definitely be more virtual with much more motion.

As a part of the music industry what do you notice has changed in the quality of production even in the past 5 years? I think it has progressed dramatically. Many producers have mastered the latest technology in music production and are using it to make waves. It’s super impressive and I am honored to be in this industry.
What would you splurge on? Gucci anything. I love Gucci and Burberry. I know it’s so cliché but their pieces are so classy and comfy.
Your debut video was shot in Miami. Was there any reason you did not shoot in Nigeria?I wanted the video to have a magical feel to it, I did explore some locations in Nigeria but had issues with logistics, scheduling and putting the right production team together so I opted for a one day shoot in Miami.
What do you appreciate most about being back in Nigeria and how has it affected your life as it is now? I think the most rewarding is being around my family and friends. There’s something about being with your friends and family in Nigeria, the culture is so rich and embracing,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], it’s priceless.
When I need outfits for an event, I usually have Bukky Are of HVS or Soraya of Younass Collection make them for me. They seem to always know what works.
How do you put your clothes together daily? I just walk into my closet and scan through until I find a piece that grabs my attention. It’s simple process. I don’t take too long.
Are you one for designers? Yes, I am. For shoes, bags,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], watches and Sunglasses. I mix classic accessories with trendy styling.
What do you think are the challenges Nigeria Artists face in going international? The international industry is very competitive. I feel we have to face a lot of competition and also lack the the tools needed to break in. Its a very strategic and well planned market, you need to be well versed and have the ability to penetrate into a niche of the market to breakthrough.
Why do you think they are not receptive to it? I think they are receptive to it, if American artists can make a Broadway show based on Fela’s life, then they are definitely open to our music, people like change, and the industry is evolving and becoming more accommodating to different cultures.
How do you balance your personal life and your career between two worlds. Nigeria and Virginia? I try to spend enough time in both countries, usually I’m in the US for work and spend time with my family in Nigeria. Its tough shuffling both lives but the work has to be done. I just try to stay focused.
If you could endorse a brand in Nigeria? Which would it be and why? I would probably go for an amateur brand spanning from youths in a university. I believe in fresh minds that are willing to work hard, and like giving young people the opportunity to become the best at what they do.
What would you say is your vision for your image, your brand? I see my image as becoming an artist who is timeless in her work, appreciated internationally and at home. My brand will eventually span into almost every category of the entertainment industry, create new opportunities for people in the creative arts and maintain international standards, but I wish to begin at home, in Nigeria.
Do you have a special designer that makes your clothes? Yes, I do. It’s always a pleasure having clothes custom made. It’s one of those things we took for granted as kids when our parents had tailors make our clothes. Now it’s the trend.
What do you miss the most about your life in America and how do you handle those emotions? There is a system in America, you can plan your day and it goes exactly as you planned, on the contrary, you can plan your day in Lagos and the traffic alone can ruin all your plans. There’s too much hassle in Nigeria, hassle for the basic amenities we as civilians should have: constant electricity, clean water, good roads, good hospitals. That’s the most frustrating part of living here for me I just handle my frustration through hope, hope that the situation would get better. But as always, there is no place like home.
Who would be your ideal collaboration and what kind of music would you like to create with that artist? I would like to collaborate with Youssou N’dour, I have a lot of respect for him as an African artist, his consistency and ability to evolve in his music with time is remarkable. A West African inspired song with a bit of Mediterranean influence would be nice.
Is there a market for Nigerian Music in the West? Yes, I believe there is
How do you find inspiration to write your songs and what is the process of getting it produced? It just comes to me; I just dig through my heart and mind. I usually work off beats or just start from scratch with the producer, we develop the music together based on the sounds I’m hearing or the concept I’m looking for.
Where do you draw your inspiration to create your music? everywhere: my life and experiences, those around me, friends, the news, reality…..everywhere
.The album is set to launch in the spring of 2011. Is there any major industry name we should be looking out for that you will be or have collaborated with? There will be major artists on the album but I prefer to keep that as a surprise.
What influences your dressing? My mood influences my dress sense daily. If I’m in a good mood, I go all out and trendy with colors, accessories, scarves e.t.c, but when I am having a weird day, I am a bit more somber in my styling, I look for simple and comfortable pieces like jeans and a top with some comfortable shoes or a nice simple dress and some heels.
What do you want people to always take away feeling with your music? hope,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], peace of mind, relief, life lessons, love. Just enjoy the music
What kind of artist would you want to be known as? What one world would you use to describe your music? I would like to be known as an artist whose music is versatile and loved by many people. Like a Sade kind of artist.
What should we look forward to with AiRis in the next year? Many tours, exclusive shows and appearances. I’m beyond excited. I truly get to do what I love and share it with others. It is a blessing. This is going to be so much fun.
How would you describe your style? I would say my style is Chic, trendy, unique. Just like fashion changes, I am flexible with it and I look for things that fit.
The process was pretty simple, I still have a life in the states and here in Nigeria, I like to keep it that way.
What is your passion? I have numerous passions but I do have a passion for cooking, fashion and of course, music. Music is my passion.
