SHE may not make the list of top Nigerian songstresses at the moment, but vocal power house, Omawunmi has relaunched her career. The music sensation is back with a new song titled Play na play, which she features legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo.
In a recent interview, she describes her experience working with this music legend as refreshing and memorable.
“She is so good at what she does. Mama Angelique that is what I call her. She doesn’t have any airs. She is playful, fun and very hygienic. She sings effortlessly. When she was recording I was just in awe. I was just saying: “I want to be slim like this”, I want to be energetic when I am her age,” she said.
Narrating how difficult it was to reach out to her, Omawunmi said, “It was difficult to get her, but it wasn’t difficult the moment I reached her. With the help of my manager, he got in touch with her through someone else that also doubles as a booking agent for me. It was like a dream come true for me. When I was shooting with Angelique at some point I started crying I couldn’t believe it. It was like a real honour for me” she reveals.
