Asked if she has already gotten to where she hoped to reach, Nadia said;

‘I have to be grateful, it’s a God-given opportunity, but, I have dreams of wanting to go further in life.
I desire to get worldwide recognition that I’m from and represent Kenya, as an African popstar…’

She added that 2020 was the best year for her career.

‘I made my first million when I was 23, which is last year.
 It was one of the best years of my life. It was a dream come true for me. I got my first endorsement deals from corporates. The same year I released my EP, we are now inching to 10 million streams. We push so hard and it’s not like I just took over as a top artist, no. The keyword is, hard work is paying off,” she responded.

Because I was like you are pretty yes but what if uchape overnight or something happens to you or you get these funny funny things that people in the industry bank on so I wanted to really come in the industry in a different way and I think lyrics and voice has super worked for me” added the Miss Mukami.
