She tells CNN: “I’ve reached a point in my life where I’ve realised I have to leave something; I have to have a legacy. I decided I will be an activist for Africa. My experience with the UN and other humanitarian organisations inspired me to want to speak out and say more and there’s so much you can just say with words; this was my motivation for singing.”
