What do you think has made you successful in the female Punjabi music industry?
Blessings from my parents and my fans are the main reasons why I have been successful so far in my career.
Do you think women are finally getting the same recognition male artists are?
Yes they do, and I'm very happy to see this happening
Besides yourself, who is your favourite female artist at the moment and what is your favourite track?
I'm very fond of listening to Gurmeet Bawa ji since my childhood and my all time favorite track of her is Mirza, I love listening to folk songs.
How would you describe yourself and the music you make? How successful has it made you?
I describe myself as DESI Jatti and my music is very much related to it..
How did the industry being predominantly male affect your path?
It didn't actually make a difference to me, everyone in the industry is very supportive.. The era has changed
What are your thoughts on the inequalities and barriers females face?
I think women need to confront and stand-up for themselves, no power in the world can stop them
There are a lot of other female singers in the music industry. Do you ever feel that there's tension or negativity between yourself and the other female artists?
Never, we all are just like family and we support each otherIs there a sort of "competition feeling" amongst the female artists? What sets you apart from the rest?
Their is no feeling of competition, everybody is unique and has a different caliber.
