Music has a language of its own. Musicians create and compose tunes that make us feel the composition.
It is almost like they have the ability to tune our emotions and touch our soul.
Singer Bianca Okorocha, aka Clay, is something unusual in the world of Nigerian music.
In a nation dominated by Afrobeats, the 26-year-old who calls herself the "Nigerian Rock Goddess" is trying to change long-held perceptions that rock is something alien to her country's music scene.
Dressed in black with a crucifix sign on her cheek, she gives her alternative rock style a hometown vibe with lyrics in local languages: Igbo and Nigerian pidgin.
Okorocha's new single, "Wetin you want", which translates as "What do you want", tells her story of defiance in a city full of crooks and hustlers with the catchphrase "This is Lagos".
"People tell me that when they hear my song on the radio and they heard the English part, they thought it was an American song, and next thing they heard Igbo. My God she is Nigerian," Okorocha told a section of the media.
Okorocha says her musical style is heavily influenced by her father's love of rock.
"Rock music chose me, because even when I was young without any idea or plan of going into music at all, I was already writing songs on the side and they were all rock songs," she says.
"When I had to pick my own TV channel, I was picking channels that play rock music so this is something that I always liked when I was growing up as a child and my dad too influenced that because he used to listen to Bon Jovi and the likes."
Okorocha began singing in a church choir then moved on to perform in bars and at concerts.
