HER GOAL IN NIGERIA
Adams did not come to Nigeria for competition with anyone but with God on her side; she has what it takes to make delible mark in the Nigerian music scene. She said “It is divine intervention and connection that I joined DAAR Music; which is a noble record label any topnotch artiste is dreaming to be signed on. The advertisement and branding opportunities with DAAR Global is enormous and I thank deeply thank God for choosing me. I have already relocated to Nigeria for the real deal and already enjoying the hospitality.
ANY DISCOVERY IN NIGERIA?
According to Kanvee, there is a huge difference between the Nigerian and Liberian music industry. Talents are everywhere but Nigeria has a large population, attention and a fruitful market which is the hub of music in Africa. “Acceptance is key to me and I pray the masses accept me and my songs as we do for Nigerian artistes in Liberia” By virtue of her credibility as an established gospel music act, the delectable singer is confident she would find a footing on the competitive gospel music scene in Nigeria.
FAMILY LIFE & MUSIC
Regardless of being married with three kids, the gospel singer had not allowed her responsibilities as a wife and mother to affect her love for music. She noted, “It is multi-tasking and requires the grace to make right priorities. I still play my role as a housewife, mother and a singer and I thank my family for their support anytime and always.
