ONE of the reasons that has been assigned to why female celebrities are unable to get very far with their careers like their male counterparts is marriage and childbirth.
For some of them, the demands of being a wife and mother are too much to combine with their careers but for singer Becca, being married and having recently had a baby would not slow her down.
“Most successful singers after marriage and childbirth relax but not me. I don’t intend to quit music soon for any reason, music is a passion and business. So why would I want to end my passion and business because of marriage?
“Marriage should not end your careers but give you an even deeper reason to strive harder and accomplish the most difficult. I am more determined and motivated than any other time in my life,” she told Graphic Showbiz last Saturday.
Becca's statement rings true as the singer has been busy since she gave birth to her baby girl earlier this year with her Nigerian husband, Dr Tobi Sanni Daniel.
She released a single, Driving License featuring Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, in July and is set to release another song titled, Yes I Do featuring Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage tomorrow, Friday, September 27.
Becca told Graphic Showbiz that she was able to effectively combine marriage, her baby and music because she managed her time well.
“I am married to my best friend and he understands and supports my passion and business. And I am also blessed to be surrounded by great domestic staff,” she explained.
She admitted that although it was not easy to do all that, determination and proper planning was important. “When you know what you want to do at a particular time, you are able to put your things in order and you have no issues.”
Becca disclosed that she was planning to release her next album before the second quarter of next year but in the meantime, she would make her fans happy by releasing a number of singles until then.
“I am crazy for my fans, that is why I give them the best of music. I will continue giving my fans the best of me,” she said.
Becca, who is popular for tracks such as U Lied To Me, African Woman, Na Wash, Hwe, Beshiwo, Sumye, Nana among others, said she would release the audio and video of Yes I Do at the same time.
