I have been on social media world since 2010, just a couple years before I started my blog and YouTube channel. I was utterly convinced as a teenager that I had so much to share with the world.
One of the perks of growing up online is getting to see and experience the rise of many of our favourite singers, YouTubers, bloggers, actors and entrepreneurs, who are now doing very well in their fields.
One of said people is British Nigerian soulful singer songwriter, Shae, notably known online as Shae Universe. She is easily one of my favourite vocalists ever.
My connection with Shae is actually an interesting one. Our mums are really good friends so before I knew her, I knew her.
So a few months ago, I jumped at the opportunity to sit down and film an interview with her in London. Of course, I had to get her to sing because I firmly believe you have to hear her sing to fully experience Shae Universe as an artist.
She spoke about her musical journey, how social media has helped her, gaining recognition from people like Chance the Rapper and navigating the UK music industry as a black woman.
