It was a delightful session with pop star, Omawumi Megbele in the last episode of Rubbin’ Minds, as host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu tackled her on issues regarding her personal life, career, motherhood, upcoming concert and other hot topics.
Megbele spoke about her upcoming concert, ‘Lasso of Truth’, which she said will be a mixture of fun, variety of emotions and soulful performances. Not leaving behind what she referred to as the most important thing in her life, her daughter, Omawumi stated that no matter what becomes of her career, she will always make a way for her daughter.
Obi-Uchendu steps up talk-TV with this one. Watch the video below:
Nigeria’s pop diva; Omawumi in this week’s episode of Rubbin’ Minds revealed her humble background which she is very proud of, as she narrates her growing up while cooking Nkwobi and Isi Ewu and as well tendering for customers at her mother’s ‘glorified beer parlour’ in Warri, Delta state.
Famed for her regular use of Pidgin English, the West African Idol explains her choice of expression, claiming it saves hers when sometimes “I just hook”. She also notes that it (Pidgin English) is a major ‘selling point’ for people from the Niger Delta where she hails from and that English language is not her language.
Omawumi also discussed about the dawn of her music career at the West African Idol and also opened up on her sophomore album and forthcoming concert.
