She explained that she was old enough to understand that the manager holds more responsibility than the artist, including paying the band members and handling other duties.

Her father, who was Fela’s manager at the time, managed the crew since everyone approached him, not Fela.

She stressed the significance of responsible management for an artist, noting that this has greatly influenced her current career in managing artists.
