The Nigerian singer, songwriter, and producer first caught the attention of the mainstream music industry when “Mr. Rebel,” the single she performed and composed, became a hit in 2018. She followed up with “Looku Looku” and “Try Me” earning loyalty from fans who have since labeled themselves “rebels.”
