Speaking on her projects, the singer stated that "We love to attend, support and perform at events that stand for our mission. During United Nation's week in NYC there are many such events in support of Africa and beyond. This connects to our main goal of bridging cultures and continents through music. It was a great honour to meet the President and First Lady and we hope to continue to collaborate with Ghana and Africa as a whole. We are grateful for the invite to attend the event with so many wonderful people and to share the beautiful giving spirit in the room. We were very inspired by founder Dr. Boachie-Adjei's choice to dedicate his life to this cause and we will continue to support how we can."
