Hear what Surutu who just opened a music studio in Ikeja Lagos told The Entertainer:
“Opening a music studio wasn’t my decision; my younger brother surprised me with it,” she said. “We were both in the choir when we were young and that was where the love for music developed. In fact I wanted to open a boutique as a small business to support my acting career but he told me not to because he had a surprise for me.
“The next day after he returned from the United States, he took me to a place in Ikeja and showed me the studio which he had fully equipped. It was a huge surprise to me,”.
The 47-year-old Ondo-born actress plans to be more focused on music this year.
