Goodgirl LA Shares insight on her Music, Passion, Putting her Home Town on the Map

“My greatest motivation to make music so far, has been the passion to be great and different, to do something in a way no one has ever done it, to put my home town, Ebom on the map and to inspire more people, especially girls to be extraordinary, says Goodgirl LA

Regina Ogwuche presents the excerpts:

 

What part of Nigeria are you from?

I am from Cross River State.

How much has the environment you grew up in influenced your style and sound of music?

I grew up listening to a lot of Nigerian and international music, from R&B to Pop, Reggae and Gospel genres. My family lived around Festac/Amuwo Odofin for a while, so I was exposed to music by 2 face, Asa, D’Banj and Psquare, Michael Bolton, Boyz II Men, Britney Spears, Micheal Jackson. Listening to all these sounds, influenced my sound as an artist, that’s why I call it Afro-Fusion. I hear and write music differently, in my own unique way.

For how long have you been pursuing music as a career?

Officially, I have been doing music for about 3 years now.

What is your definition of a perfect day?

A perfect day for me would be that day when I perform to an audience of over 10,000 people, with my band, DJ and dancers. The day I pull off my biggest performance.

Do you write all your songs?

For now, yes, I write all the lyrics to my songs. I can’t wait to start co-writing and getting songs written for me, I love to collaborate creatively, share ideas to create great music.

What emotion was going through you when you recorded Far Away?

When I wrote “Faraway”, I was actually as hurt as I sounded. I liked someone and really wanted him to notice me, but he just didn’t get it. I decided to put all that emotion, in a song and make money off it, at least, since that didn’t work out lol. Faraway has received and is still receiving a lot of love and support from all over. It is so amazing to see people listening to your feelings and relate to it, like it was their own experience.

What has been your greatest motivation to create music?

My greatest motivation to make music so far, has been the passion to be great and different, to do something in a way no one has ever done it, to put my home town, Ebom on the map and to inspire more people, especially girls to be extraordinary.

How has the journey thus far been as a female artist in Nigeria?

The journey so far has been great and challenging, but I love it every step of the way. My family has been and is still the biggest supporters of my music.

Asides music is there any other thing you would love to do?

Asides music, I don’t really know what I would have done, maybe a career in fashion, hospitality or cosmetics.
