Nollywood Actress Stella Damasus Sets the Record Straight on her Extensive Music Experience, “No Bandwagon” Artist

Nollywood Actress Stella Damasus, despite her diverse and beautiful talents dancing, singing and acting, feels the need to go on the defense and set the record straight on her extensive background in music. Understandably so since truthfully, we do a terrible job documenting our history that so many, especially the new generation of creative professionals and the public haven’t the faintest idea about our music, fashion or film histories.

Of all the many Nollywood acts that have attempted to launch a singing career, I think it is pretty clear Damasus is the most talented of them all. She is certainly in a lane of her own and holds her own just fine with other seasoned music veterans in the game.

Read her recently press statement released:

“Those who think I joined the bandwagon of movie stars trying to play music must be new in the industry. They should reminded of the music video “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 Okposo’s album, collaboration with Blakky and OGD All Stars. I have done a lot of songs with Tim Godfrey and Extreme Crew. Three (3) years ago, I did the Christmas songs and videos for AfricaMagic.

In addition, I have done shows for MTN, Econet, WorldSpace, Keem Bello Osagie, American Embassy, Aisha Babaginda’s first wedding, Peugeot, Leo Stan Eke and Delta State Convention among others.”
