Yesterday, Sunday 2nd of September 2012, saw beautiful and divalicious singer Omawumi Megbele on its front cover.
The interview feature tagged “Omawuni Megbele: Made in Warri” reveals a lot about the singer.
“Omawunmi is born to an Itsekiri father and an Ijaw broadcaster mum. She grew up with 14 siblings who were all brought up with the strictest rules.
She first came into limelight in 2007, when she participated in the Idols West Africa competition, finishing second after Timi Dakolo. Since then, she never looked back as she made adequate use of the platform created by the event.
In 2008, she launched her first single, ‘In the Music’. In 2009, her effort was recognised by Hip Hop Awards as she carted away two awards that year, ‘Best Female Vocal’ and ‘Next Rated’, which came with a car prize.
A law graduate of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo state, Omawunmi Boma Megbele is an interviewer’s delight, charming everyone who came her way.
Very articulate with a huge sense og humour, she would spice her words with Pidgin English spoken with all the nuances anybody from the Warri area of Delta State would. Being street-wise she says, is her survival strategy and it endears people to her; making her believable and reachable.
Last year she entered motherhood when she gave birth to her bundle of Joy, Khamilla”.
