Ella Eyre becomes the ''Lion King'' when she performs live.

The 20-year-old singer described her concerts as a very energetic experience, and her hair ends up ''going everywhere'', making her look like Mufasa from the popular Disney classic.

Speaking on 'Michael and Tinea' on KISS FM UK, she said: ''My stage athletics are something.

''I do like to jump around, I do love having risers to jump off, because I really love seeing the pictures after the shows, with my hair going everywhere, like a lion pit. I like to think there's this real life Lion King going on.''

Meanwhile, the singer - who became known for her collaborations with the likes of Rudimental - insisted she is now looking to branch out and make a name for herself as a solo artist.

She explained: ''I did a lot of collaborations last year and I want people to know I am a solo artist, I don't just piggy back everyone else.

''I think this year is more about establishing myself so hopefully everyone will enjoy it.''

Ella added: ''I've had the privilege of going on tour with the Rudimental boys, seeing their success, being a part of the success, and seeing them grow, and seeing the likes of John Newman do well, and now Becky Hill and Sinead Harnett, branching out.

''It's really nice that finally it's my time, and I hope that people are excited to hear it.
