We Jacksonites- What do you love?

Ijele- I love to act. I love music. I love Raps a lot, but if you want me to dance, you could play traditional music. But I love Raps a lot, talk of songs done by Wyclef Gean, TuPac Shakor, Eminem, and some of our Igbo rappers like Mr. Raw, TC Virus. I love ‘see me rolling’ by TC Virus. It’s one of the songs I can sing from beginning to end (laughs). I love being myself always and not a dual person. I love to make people happy.

She thanked God for sustaining her life, and for helping her to make other smile through her works of life.
