Mimmo, who was previously a news editor at Hot 96, says that it was not a bed of roses. She also admitted that she misses and was looking forward to making a come back on radio.

"Things have been tough but I'm pushing on. I have to admit that I have met so many challenges since I quit my job a year ago. I'm really looking forward to going back to radio as I'm already in talk with a renown radio station that was looking for a news editor and anchor. I really miss that life," Mimmo told Word Is.

Meanwhile the singer will be shooting the video to her new song Roller Coaster on Sunday. The song was produced by Ulopa Ngoma before he left for Sub-Sahara records. It will be shot at Lavington Green and will be directed by Kevin Bosco.

After leaving Hot 96, Mimmo has been recording with different producers and featured on P-Unit's big hit Kare.
