She was initiated in the major cabarets and made her debut with Abdoulaye Cissé, one of the most recognised names in Burkinabè music. SNC winner, she went on tour for several months, mostly in Europe, where she encountered the great artist Check Tidiane Sec, who took her under his wing.

In March 2020, she remained in Burkina Faso taking the time to develop her new project and perfect her electropop Faso “in the red earth of upright men”.
