“It means they really love what am doing and I appreciate it,” she added.
Expressing her view on the rumors that she revived Lynx Entertainment, the former member of girl band D3 said “me saying I have revived them will be super wrong, they have actually really helped me.”
“When I started with my girl band D3, it was even hard for them to have time for us because there was too much they were doing, right now I think they have found space for me cos they see I’m promising,” she continued.
Commenting on why she chose dancehall over other genres of music, MzVee said “When you trying to get the attention of people in a very new space, you have to grab the attention the best way you can.”

She concluded that, “I’m not in any competition, I’m just having fun, so if people are in competition with me, I have never heard of.”
