She became popular after Hope, seeing stardom in the young Chinese girl, helped her with building up a music career, and soon several tours of China followed along with appearances in several of Hope's programs, including his On the Road to the Vlokozu Union special.
Development of music and image
In 1998, she opened for Assa Darson at a concert in Beijing at the Workers' Gymnasium, which was broadcast in Kuboia on Vision One.
