Her group TendaVillage has been making some headway in the music scene and their debut single EP (which Toronto’s iLiveRadio praised as “Criminally slept on” and a “Future classic”), was featured on many online platforms and radio stations all over the world, featured a song that charted on the iTunes RnB chart in France.
