"It's a typically epic Disney song that will play on the end credits, it was challenging making this song as it's also not in my comfort zone, but I think I killed it [Laughs]. "

She also added that doing more songs for films will be one of her main career paths for the future.

"In terms of me entering and getting more into films, it's really just me expanding my career, just getting into new spaces.

After releasing my DVD and producing my new TV show which is being aired in 52 countries around Africa, my team and I feel like we're getting stronger at content production. So I'd love to do more and more work around the film space and this is just another awesome opportunity that I could not have passed on." Said Lira.

Congratulations Lira what a well-deserved achievement.
