Popular skit maker, Maryam Akpaogaki, better known as Taaooma, has revealed why she ventured into the music industry.

The comedienne-cum-musician said she started music because she felt it would be better to use her songs in her skits instead of using songs by other musicians.

She disclosed this while featuring as a guest on the latest episode of The Leaderboard podcast hosted by Fisayo Fosudo.

She said, “For me, entertainment is freedom. You can do anything.

“I also like the fact that it’s my music. It’s my song. It’s a song that I can be proud that I made. I just feel like, I’m using other people’s songs [in my skits], and this thing is not so hard. I have a studio, we can record songs.

“I love music. Some people used to say I have [a melodic] voice. But, I feel like, instead of me trying to sing, we can do collaborations and make something happen.”

On those criticising her music, Taaooma said it was up to God and her commitment to prove her critics wrong.
