Sitting with the poise befitting only a queen and flashing a smile that defines all she stand for, as she spoke
“my name is Yanique “curvy Diva”, I am a television host and recording artiste from Jamaica and I am here to rule the music scene in Nigeria and Africa.”. Audacious you must say, but why did she choose Nigeria, “because I heard Nigeria has a lot of rich men(general laughter) that was just on a lighter note. Nigeria for me is the entertainment headquarters of Africa and the vibe coming out of Nigeria is really top notch, and this is the roots of my people it is home for me and I have heard so much about this country that I am here to enjoy it” the Jamaican dancehall queen who arrived the country for the “Reggae Afrobeat Jamrock “ explained.
Yanique began studying mass communication, but stardom came for her before she could complete her studies. Thanks to heaven she followed her dreams as she became an instant hit as a television host across the Americas for her stunning performance on the famous television show Magnum Kings & Queens of dance hall.
Soon Jamaicans came for her, calling for her resignation from the show following her off-air antics. One of her well-reported controversies; is her on-air face off with fellow celebrity, Kitty. However, this writer will soon observe that the Diva sure knows how to turn advisories to advantages and use what others call negativity as a stepping stone to success; as she looked away from doubt and cynical comments from critics and announced herself in a big way with the release of her hit song “lifestyle”, and in no time everyone was caught up in the fever of “lifestyle”, given her delivery of the song and captivating dance steps that can make a cripple stand to his feet to salute her gift. It is rumored that Yanique”s “lifestyle” was played at funerals.
How does she intern to force her way into the play list of Nigerians ? “Because I have a big yansh (ass) another round of laughter as she ran her delicate hand over her shoulder and spoke softly “I just believe good work sales itself, I am not all about my body but I know it is all part of the package, but I know with my vocals and performance and dancing skills Nigerians will love me”.
Loving her, they are already, as fun seekers at Abuja could not have enough of this beauty as she thrilled with her performance at the “ Reggae Afrobeat Jamrock”.
Who will she love to have a collaboration with among Nigerian talents and which song introduced her to Nigerian music “ your first question is so tricky because every one of them is so talented from 2face, WizKid, Tiwa Savage, and great producer like Don Jazzy among others , I am open to work with every one of them. To your second question, it has to be 2face. When I heard “African Queen”, I felt so proud and good”. She concluded.
