Sitting in the plush lounge at the Mount Nelson Hotel , Panga Management indulgences in the sugar-fest high tea , while Veronica Electronica sips on a large- pink- drink complete with vodka and a crimson umbrella. Veronica’s responsibilities as a Goodwill Ambassador during the day, and party vixen at night have manifested in a schedule from hell. Luckily for PM, Veronica loves us, so she cancelled a few diplomatic dalliances to give us this interview.

Please note: if you have not seen Veronica perform or if you have missed the broadcast of her lecture serious on BBC, besides the fact that you evidently live under a rock, you will also not be aware that everything she says ends with an exclamation in tone!!!!!! PM has tried to keep the inflection in the below text as true as possible.
