She's sexy and also talented, her voice is one of a kind, her name Lami Phillips, she's one of the deepest soul singer in Nigeria. This UN Ambassador who do charitable work broke into limelight with the song (know) that features the short black boy of chocolate City MI and ever since the released of the single, she been a force to reckon with in the Nigerian music industry.

This diva in an recent interview, complaint about artiste that use backing tracks. If I call myself a musician, I should be able to play live. But if somebody's booking me for a show and they don't want to take into account the cost of the band, sound and the likes especially if it's a show outside Lagos, where organizers have to fly you all down for a proper concert then, its not favorable

I was excited when 2face had his live show and Dbanj;s Koko Concert, where they had a full orchestra, that is what we need to encourage.

Again, I feel like the term artiste has been abused. There are many non-musician parading themselves as artiste, you must first be skilled at what you do. Anyone who cant performed with a live band has failed.

But again, if the public is going to learn to reject sub-standard music, that will help quality control. Am quite sure we're at a cross road.
