When Cynthia Morgan recently shared her story on the Star Music Trek #MySuperstarStory series, she recalled that when she left Benin for Lagos a few years ago, her friends mocked her dream of making it as a singer in Lagos. They told her “You know how many people don go that Lagos to sing wey no see anything do? You go come back to this Benin.”
On Saturday August 15, the energetic red-haired artiste will make her triumphant return to Benin as the biggest female dancehall music artiste in Nigeria. She will be performing at the Star Music Trek concert at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium tagged BeninRocks alongside A-list Nigerian artistes such as Wande Coal, Burna Boy, MI, Jesse Jagz, Seyi Shay, Do2dtun, DJ Neptune and DJ Switch.
From being a performer in a youth choir, the girl from Benin is now Nigeria’s undisputed queen of dancehall.
