My first day in labour room - Omawumi

Afro singer Omawumi’s fame has not waned after her outstanding performance and triumph at the West Africa Idol Reality Show. The Itsekiri singer and songwriter has done well for herself in her chosen career.

She is at present a Brand Ambassador for Globacom, Konga.com and Malta Guinness. The mother of two recently released a single album titled Butterfly.

In a brief chat with Omawunmi at a function in Lekki Phase 1, she was just herself and spoke in pidgin and English about her firsts. Excerpts:

Your very first work as an artiste?

My very first single is In The Music. I wrote the song myself and it was produced by Cobhams Asuquo.

First day on stage?

My first day on stage was during West Africa Idol in 2007. I had been on stage before but it was quite different. It was very good but I was nervous. Anytime I want to go on stage, I’m still very nervous but I think it’s one of the things that make a good performer.

Your first award?

I don’t remember. But one of the most prominent awards I won was a hip-hop award in 2009, which came with a KIA Optima.

First car?

It was a Toyota Rav 4 but the car don go somewhere. I no dey drive am again. I gave it out.

First trip abroad?

That was in 2007, when I attended the MOBO award with Timi Dakolo in London.

First day on an airplane?

Probably when I was a child. I no be mumu like that.

First designer outfit?

I don’t remember but I think I got it when I started appearing on TV. I do remember my first designer shoes were Dolce and Gabbana.

First pet?

I love dogs but my first pet was a cat I named Oscar but e don die.

First kiss?

I don’t remember. Even if I did, it doesn’t concern anybody.

First time in labour room?

It was in June 2011. It was beautiful. It was God that just did it for me. I had already planned everything I wanted, but at the end of the day, I forgot everything. I forgot the breathing for contraction, I just dey do my own dey go. I gave birth in America and by the time the pain started I was speaking Pidgin English to the nurse. I didn’t spend more than four hours during labour. God is faithful.
