Afro soul diva Lami Phillips was featured with a one-page interview in Nigeria’s The Nation on Saturday, 18 May 2013. In the candid interview, Lami sheds light on her life, her music and her style.
On Sticking with Neo Soul
I am stubborn but my decision is primarily based on my inability to be fake or pretend. I can only do what I know and love. I cannot give what I don’t have. I’d rather transform than conform.
On New Video for ‘Titi Lai Lai’
It’s a fun video. I just called a few friends who were around and we just clowned. The song has a funk soul feel.
On Her Style
Tiannah completely gets my weird fashion sense and has succeeded in translating my personality into my style and fashion signature.
