Why Size 8 Should Stick To Secular Music

Talent Gone To Waste
Size 8 had defied the status quo and dethroned big names that had held the top stop in the industry for more than eight years while doing secular. She kept on releasing new hits that won her accolades across the region, making her a household name besides commanding dominance in big concerts as she laughed her way to the bank — after signing deals worth millions.
