I’m Always Wondering Why It’s Only The Women Who Are ‘Shaking’ – Onyeka Onwenu

Vanguard’s Benjamin Njoku caught up with Onyeka Onwenu at  the maiden edition of the #Space Legends Series which held at Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Lagos

She had a thing or two to say about the “shaking of a thing”

The only thing I’m worried about is this shaking..shaking ..shaking of a thing. It’s getting too much and I’m always wondering why it’s only the women who are ‘shaking’. Let the men also go and shake their own so that we can see.


She also talks about her journey to being a musician

I may have started singing from the womb because my mother was a singer and I was born singing. My mother taught me how to sing while I was three. She would take me around the town to raise money for orphanage homes. She also taught me some songs and would do duets with me. Surprisingly, my mother wrote, “Ochie dike Nne.” She was a fantastic singer and a fantastic actress. That was how I grew up. I inherited singing and I also inherited the work ethics and the commitments to use my talent to help the society that has made me what I am today. So, it has always been with me.
