Apparently, Uncle Sam had invited Lara George over to the office simply because he is fond of her music. According to Lara George, “Dansaki” is one amongst his favourite songs. Uncle Sam who came in a bit late held back by traffic walked in with a gift for Lara George in appreciation of her contribution to social good through her music. Lara in turn gave Uncle Sam an autographed copy of the “Dansaki” album.

“Oftentimes,” Lara George said, “Gospel artists are treated with so much disrespect, something that few would dare to show a secular artiste. In the bid to negotiate, some will talk you down and act like your work is non-existent.”
