In the interview, Ayo describe her upbringing and talked about the joy her son Nile gives her.

Ayo on using music to cope with the pain of being raised by a heron-addicted mother: "Some people go to therapy, but when I opened up and talked about it in my saved me."

Ayo on her son, Nile: "My son gave me more confidence in myself. He made complete. He made a real woman."

-Her Nigerian father nicknamed her "Ayo".
-Ayo happens to be the one of the first artists to be featured on Feels Good 2 B Home. (And we're glad Ayo's getting attention from "Giant" magazine!)
