She spent two and a half years under their direction and guidance and in mid 2015, it was decided that Fatai would desire to pursue the future as an independent artist. Fatai spent a great deal of time in the studio recording and her debut single, Purple, was released on 16 August 2015. Soon followed by her live debut EP, Undone, on 20 November 2015. Fatai began singing professionally with her family from the age of seven. In 2009, she began a solo career, singing to audiences at various festivals and community events.
