Popular artists work with up-and-coming ones in the music business to promote them and win over new followers. Both singers benefit professionally from the increased exposure. Some of these partnerships result in songs that stick in the listeners’ minds and have a longer shelf life. These partnerships may also be between two titans of the music industry. She has worked with musicians for Ada Ehi, including Nimix, Victor Ike, and rapper Limoblaze.
In November 2009, her debut album Undenied was made available. In November 2013, the two-disc album Lifted and So Fly was made available. On October 16, 2017, she issued Future Now, her third studio album. On the same day, it achieved the top spot on iTunes Nigeria.
In the remix of her song “Bobo Me,” which is included on the So Fly album, she collaborated with Victor Ike. She and rapper Lomoblaze worked together to create the song Okay, released on her birthday, September 18, 2020.
Another joint venture is with Nimix. FreeNation has signed Ada Ehi. Hasinibu is one of several songs Nimix released after joining the Freenation music label. In this song, Ada Ehi was featured. Additionally, she included Sinach in her song “Fix My Eyes on You.”
