Born 13th April 1982 and known by her stage name Omawunmi, this talented singer-songwriter and actress has captured my heart with her amazing voice. Being a 2007 runner up on west African idols she started her career in 2007 and since then the lovely Omawunmi has been versatile her in music. She sings soul, R&B, pop and I most especially love her afro. Did I mention her flipping acting skills? Well I just did. Omawunmi has starred in Olurombi a musicplay, Inale, Return of Jenifa and House of gold.
How down to earth she is makes me feel like we’ll get along well if we ever meet.

Mo Abudu is truly the Queen of TV production. A very smart woman that has understood the market she’s in and has taken over.
