“ No one thought it was a good idea then and no one thinks it is a good idea now…My wife foreseen all this. She tried to tell the network, ‘I don’t think this is going to work, I’m afraid…this is going to turn into one of those reality shows. I didn’t sign up to be on Love And Hip Hop.’”
…I never wanted to be up front, I was always happy being the backing singer. I sang for so many…like Aretha Franklin, Mary J Blige and Mariah Carey. It was unreal but great…I would have been the highest paid backing singer at the time because of the reputation I had built and the passion I had for it. Mariah called me back to tour with her on several occasions whilst I was working on other projects—I mean, I also wrote music, and so it got to a point where so many people around me were constantly trying to tell me and encourage me to go forward for myself and sing my own songs.
