“Falz did a verse on my song, ‘JAMB Question Remix’. And I was like, ‘Ah! Me and this guy, there is a vibe there.’ So, we did ‘Soldier’, and everybody was like, the chemistry is so amazing.
“We never saw that. People bought what we were not selling. And we were like, okay, this is a strategy. So, we did ‘Chemistry’ on the album. People gave us the name and the idea. We never actually came and say, oh, we are dating,” she said
On January 9, 2019 in Lagos, the 35-year-old Ojuelegba-born singer got married to her secret lover, singer Adekunle Almoruf Kosoko, known professionally as Adekunle Gold and AG Baby.
In 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, Adejare.
