She performed at the 2017 Olojo Festival in Ile-Ife, the Apollo Theatre with Lucky Dube, the Toronto African Music Festival. etc. She has received citations from the cities of Boston & Newark for efforts to bridge cultures. In 2012 she became the Yeye Asa of Ile Ife Iyanfoworogi. In 2016, she was crowned the Yeye Osun of Modakeke.

As the Yeye Asa (Mother of Culture) she wanted to use her talents to showcase the Yoruba culture. In 2017 she produced, cowrote, starred in and composed the soundtrack for the Yoruba Epic “Osun the Goddess” to not only portray the traditional culture but to also address women’s issues.
