[MS]First things first...What's the story behind your name, Empress Ayeola?

[EA] well you know first of all it was about...I would say...14 years ago, I was listening to a Mutabaruka program where he was actually discussing African baby names and then the name Ayeola came up and he gave the meaning that it was “Joy and Wealth in Life” and I just love that name because it was so close to my so-called “Babylon middle name”...it was fantastic!

[MS] You sing "Beautiful Jamaica, a place for roots and culture", is there something special for you in that island?

[EA] Yuh nuh, I was born in England, left when I was about two years old to Jamaica, went to school, worked for a couple of years after graduating, then I returned to the UK.

While attending school in Ja, I had a very famous teacher, the late "great" Sonya Spence, know for hits like "No Charge, Leaving On A Jet Plane, When and many more.... She was my English and Drama teacher, sometimes she would cover for our music teacher, I was one of four girls selected to do backing vocals for her wen she was playing out, that is how i started out doing music.
