The Nigerian songstress has a new album out entitled “Bed of Stone” which you can preview HERE. Today however, we’re taking it back to her retro-themed, 50s inspired video for “Why Can’t We” from her sophomore album “Beautiful Imperfection” and – of course – those inspiring lyrics! Because, really, why can’t we? Enjoy!
You worry much about the things you don’t understand
But don’t give up, if it doesn’t go with the plan
Why not have some fun
While you’re still young and still ok
Cos’ life is short
Do what you can today today
Why can’t we be happy?
