INTRODUCTION
My name is Paulina Oduro commonly known as Aunty Paulina.. I am a musician first, then an Actress, a TV Presenter, feature as a Judge on talent shows, and recently added a Director (laughs) I do it all.
When and how did you first become interested in music?
When I came out of my mothers womb lol. I became interested in music at a very early age and even when I used to work in the hospital as a nurse I was always singing to the sick kids.. So yeah I have loved music since forever.
How long have you been in it?
For over thirty yes now (nods head)....yea I have been here for a while

  What kept you motivated when you weren't receiving the kind of attention you wanted?
I have never really been interested in the attention (although that's important) but I just wanted to sing. So even when the attention wasn't coming I was still singing. If I had a mouth and a voice, I was singing (laughs).. So my motivation was that I knew The Almighty God has given me a gift and I just kept using it!
What are your musical influences?
Life! Everything around me, the youth and I have a very special place in my heart for them.
Did you ever feel like quitting
Of cos who doesn't? There are times when you just say 'that's it am not doing this anymore especially in our part of the world, this kind of career part is hard but you have got to keep pushing, you have to be believing even if you fail know its a part of success so try again!

What's been your "I've made it" moment so far?
Honestly? I will let you know when I get there (laughs).

What's your goal as an artist?
My goal as an artist is to be an instrument of change in our society, is to be a voice for the youth and women.

Does anyone in your family play music?
Yes my sons play music, my god-son is into music in fact I have a new single called two little birds with him right now.

What else do you do besides play music?
What don't I do is the question (laughs) like I said earlier am also an Actress, TV Presenter, I worked as a Judge on many talent shows here in Ghana and recently I am going to be directing my first ever movie (Smile).

What is it about the way you play that song that makes it different than the other kinds?
As a musician whatever song you are doing be it yours or other peoples, you have to make it your own! Let the people see you in your singing. I think that is what makes me different and has kept me different all these years.

What has been the key to the consistency in your career?
Errmm I would say its a clean heart. Never wish bad on anybody always always have a clean heart towards people and recognize early that you are running your own race.

What would you do differently as an artist if you had the opportunity to go back in time?
Absolutely nothing my darling. I believe that what ever has happened in the course of my career has been the orchestration of the Almighty.
