AFRIMA has taught me to up my game – ZY Miami
Fast-Rising singer, Alexander Iwuchukwu, professionally known as Zy Miami, has revealed that her recent debut on the red carpet of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) has spurred her to achieve new heights in her career. The award ceremony, which held last Sunday, has been a prominent platform that not just celebrates, but inspires a lot of African stars.
The Afrobeats Princess from the East, who also recently released her debut album dubbed Self Worth, noted that interacting with other award-winning entertainers has nudged her towards creating more impactful music.
“I am so happy to have graced the event. I didn’t even expect the reception, but they actually even love my music. Even the A-list entertainers were so welcoming. I was so excited. Then, with everything I am seeing again, I need to work extra hard to keep the momentum. I want to get nominated next year. My career right now is going to be driven. This time around I was inspired to see other African acts bring in their A-game,” she said.
Miami stepped into the music scene earlier this year with Self Worth, which was a personal commentary on self-esteem, wrapped in an upbeat Afro-pop vibe. She recently dazzled at the just-concluded Industry Nite event where she juggled her Igbo, Pidgin, and English lyricism to create an exciting vibe.
