Is it True that you’re working on a song with Neyo?
We have spoken online and discussed working on a song. However, our schedules haven’t aligned and we haven’t actually met in person yet. I was obsessed with his song So Sick and He’s written some amazing songs for Beyoncé & Rhianna so I’m just really excited to write a song with him. I’m hoping in 2024 our schedules can align and we can make something really special.

Is it true that Missy Elliott and Timbaland follow you on social media?
Yes it is! I grew up listening to them and they’re both icons so when I saw they followed me it felt amazing. I’d love to work with them both one day so fingers crossed.

What was it like opening up for Wizkid?
Well, there were a few thousand people in the crowd and I got a chance to sing my original Afro beats songs. The crowd were super hyped and screaming! And I was buzzing with adrenaline it felt amazing! It was a High energy performance with a dance routine and I loved every bit of it! Then of course the audience went absolutely crazy when Wizkid came out! The stage was shaking and vibrating and I was just blessed to be a belt to share the stage with such a talented artist. When he sang Brown Skin Girl with Beyoncé I got goose bumps that’s such a beautiful song. He’s such a great performer and hopefully, I get to work with him again in the future.

I hear that you’ve done some acting can you tell us a bit more?
Well my last acting role I played a reporter and it was the most lines I’ve ever had to learn. I can’t wait until the films are out and of course, I’ll keep you posted. I made a cameo appearance on Len Goodmans show called Partners in Rhyme on BBC 1. I was acting in a lot of scenes with Jeremy Vine and That was super fun I got to dress up as Dianna Ross and sing a bunch of songs and the wardrobe let me keep the costume so it’s a great keepsake memory to have especially after Len Goodmans tragic passing. He made such a huge contribution to entertainment and Strictly Come Dancing won’t ever be the same without him.

What was it like being a cruise ship singer?
I love singing on cruises ships! I’m on stage 6 nights a week giving it my all. Singing, dancing, entertaining the audience and it helps me to become a real seasoned performer and master my craft and artistry. Also I get paid to travel the world singing and doing what I love. I don’t have to cook or do laundry which is always nice. I love the ocean and being able to watch the sunset and sunrise every morning and night is the best part for me it’s absolutely breathtaking. There’s always this sense of peace I feel when I’m out at see. I’d recommend everyone to go on a cruise at least once in their life!

How old were you when you started playing guitar and piano?
I started playing guitar when I was about 6 my Grandad taught me, he was a country and western singer/musician. My Dad was also the lead singer in a band and we had a piano in the house so I’d just start playing my favourite songs by ear when I was 7. My Dad always encouraged and supported my singing and would come to all my shows as a child and give me pep talks when I was nervous to go on stage. I recorded my first song in a studio when I was 9 as I was in a girl band called sweet and sour.

What did you do for Christmas?
Since losing my Mum and younger brother Xmas has been hard for me. I’m usually somewhere in the world performing on stage on Christmas Day but this year is the first time in years I’ve spent Xmas but working and at home with friends and family. I actually got my guitar out and sang songs for everyone, we danced, got a little merry, played Monopoly and card games, gave each other gifts and cooked a yummy roast dinner. Oh, and we sang karaoke all night it was super fun!

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Do more of what makes me happy! Focus on making great music and having an even more captivating stage presence. When I’m on stage I feel it’s my duty to make sure you have a good time and connect with the music. I want people to l really have a great time I want them to dance, to feel inspired and powerful in one song and vulnerable and filled with emotion in the next song. It touched my heart when people come up to me and say I made them have a great night!

Do you have any music coming out in 2024?
Well, I’ve literally written over 100 songs over the last 5 years so I can’t wait to share some of them in 2024. For the latest updates on performances and gigs, you can follow me on Instagram @naomiroberts.x
