A lot of Nigerians blasted her for the release, tagging them upseen, but Cynthia, in an engaging interview with Vanguard, says she doesn’t care.
According to her, it’s is simply business and she has to do what she has to do to sell.
When asked what inspired the recent raunchy photo shoots, she said “Personally, for an artiste, besides music, you have to be creative when it comes to your branding, your pictures, your performances and stage craft. Pictures are part of the things that brand an artiste. A lot of people say different kind of stuff, but when you start something in Nigeria or in Africa, people start talking.
We are in the 21st century and Nigeria is not like America. We still have this mentality of ‘Oh my God, she is exposing a whole lot of stuff’ but when American artistes do it, we get to embrace them. I think it’s all about you starting your own trend, people will definitely talk, some people will love it while some will hate it .It’s all about you knowing what you see as an artiste.
When I create a song , I can actually create the video in my head. So, it’s all about the craft and the branding. I wasn’t actually nude, I was wearing a tattoo and a pair of snickers. It’s just about being different and people are definitely going to talk. It’s part of the whole business. If they don’t talk, you don’t make money. So they just have to keep talking.” She explained
Confirming that she can go nude in her videos, the fast rising singer said “Yes! It’s a performance shoot, but I don’t see myself doing any nude video though. I am just saying if the situation demands that I do it, yes, I will. Rihanna goes nude too. That’s why you are called a performing artiste.”
Admitting how much she crushes on music star Davido, she said “That will be Davido, because for me, he is hard working. Over the years, he has been able to prove himself that he is talented and not all about being just a rich kid and I think he is cute too….but because I have a crush on him doesn’t mean I want to have a relationship with him. But if he says :’Oh my God! I love you.’ We can work something out.”
