You may have seen her in Sean Kingston’s video for ‘One Away’, where she first blessed our screens with her natural, voluptuous shape and gained international attention… and she was only 17 years old!
Since then she’s been full steam ahead working on her visually stunning debut EP, ‘Wull On’. Each of the four singles on the EP were released separately with their own videos.
