"Before I was commissioned by a church to rearrange their songs working with an orchestra and a choir, I was scared of putting myself out there as a composer and arranger, let alone producer for other projects beside mine."
The singer shared that she won't let the impostor syndrome win. The star said she'll now work on other artists projects besides her own. She said she's now ready to share her skills with other artists.
"Anyway, I’m great. I’m amazing actually. I’ll be working on a lot more projects outside my own moving forward, inshallah. This impostor syndrome will not win. Give women these jobs that you believe only men can do. We will amaze you."
