Claudia said she has worked with Ghanaian artistes like George Darko, Daddy Lumba, Mzbel, Kontihene, Stella Dugan and a few others.
She narrated that working with Kojo Antwi restricted her, as other musicians had put her on a pedestal.
Claudia explained that, due to how big Kojo Antwi was, people had the notion that her pricing would be high and hence were discouraged from approaching her with job offers.
"I started working with Kojo as a backing vocalist on shows for songs he had already recorded outside the country and that eventually changed to studio works", she said.
Years after parting ways with Kojo Antwi, Claudia was able to come up with her own songs but had no one to help out.
Trixie said she is now a music director in church but work with some popular musicians from time to time.
