In 1988, five years after the formation of the band, she left the group and started her own solo career in the music industry.

Oldfield first rose to fame with the release of her debut album, Beautiful World. This album won her the 1992 Oktave award for Best Female Vocalist. Her song "Miracle" was nominated for Song of the Year.
