SINGING: WE’RE NOT BIRDS OF THE SAME FEATHER- STELLA DAMASUS
Multi-talented entertainer, Stella Damasus, has dissociated herself from joining the bandwagon of movie stars who have met brick walls in their music career, reiterating that her career in music dates back to the early 90s, even before she became a popular face inNollywood.
Stella, who just released a new single titled Love Me Quick stressed that there shouldn't be comparison between her and some actors like Genevieve Nnaji, Jim Iyke, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Tonto Dikeh, Lilian Bach, Nkem Owoh and Uche Elendu who are trying to do music but have failed shot at music. for Stella, she had been doing music, even before her career as an actress.
“Those who think I joined the bandwagon of movie stars trying to play music must be new in the industry. They should be reminded of the music video of 'Love Song' I did with Jaiye (my late husband) and the band. I was a studio singer at Klink Studio from 1995. That is where I was trained by Sammy Okposo, Zubby Enebeli, Manny Eke, Thelma, Demola Olukotu and the rest. I also started singing in Jazzville before Jaiye (of blessed memory) and I set up our band called Synergy. After he died, I set up Gig Factor.
Then I did respective duets with Segun Arinze, Mr. Cool, back-ups for Sammy's album, collabo with Blakky and OGD All Stars. I have done a lot of songs with Tim Godfrey and Extreme Crew. Three years ago, I did the Christmas songs and videos for Africa Magic. In addition, I have done shows for MTN, ECONET, Worldspace, Keem Bello Osagie, American Embassy, Aisha Babangida's first wedding, Peugeot, Leo Stan Eke and Delta State Convention among others,” Stella explained.
