Growing up in the oaths of Croydon amongst a large family, Sabiyha learnt values from her matriarch 'Nanny' and her mother. "She was quite strong-willed when she was young, and whilst she didn't let me act out growing up, she encouraged me to speak up and have my own opinions," says Sabiyha; "She'd ask 'Are you a leader or are you a follower?' She was quite hard about that - she didn't want me to go along with what people were saying, and that's what has shaped the way I am."

He gassed me to kingdom come at the beginning, then towards the end, would make me feel so small. By the end of the track, I literally exclaimed: “DO I CARE?” AND THE ANSWER IS Nah. I’m 100% over it fam! I couldn't be more over it if I was sitting on the moon, so boy bye.”
