The Port-Harcourt born actress after enjoying acting several movies, Dikeh decided to try her hand inmusic though she had once featured in a musicvideo owned by Amaco investments where she and Patience Ozokwor were called to mime the song.

She made her debut by releasing singles ‘Hi’ and ‘Itz Ova’ feat Snypa. While many lauded her effort, the songs were trailed by controversy as critics especially questioned her vocal ability. Doubts were raised on whether her decision to try her hands on music was for the best.

Nevertheless the songs enjoyed steady airplay and massive downloads. Dikeh showed she was not a quitter with the release of a new single ‘Crazically fit’ featuring Terry G, who was also the producer, then Jeje and then some more. On 13 June 2014, Pop star D’banj, unveiled Dikeh under the artistes with his record label DB Records’ LEE family.

It was supported by the songs “Feel Alright” (featuring Harry Song) and “Through the Fire” (featuring Uche).

The delectable ebony-complexioned actress shocked many people with a gospel musical video a couple of years back. But Kate’s entrance into themusic scene was like a flash in the pan. There was nothing to show that she is a better singer than other actresses who are rocking the microphone. From all the indications, Kate may have agreed with the critics that she lacks carriage, courage and drive to realize her dream as a singer.

shan-georgeShan George – Shan George is one of the early Nollywood actress who gained popularity for her acting prowess.

The actress had a very elaborate launch for her debut and sophomore albums. But the twice-marriedNollywood star actress knows for sure that she does not have what it takes to battle for space in the Nigerian highly competitive music scene.

Shan even revealed in one of her interviews that she released the albums just for the people in her village. Watch the video for her song ‘Ababa’ featuring Sunny Nneji below.

Stella Damasus 1Stella Damasus – Stella Damasus is a successful actress turned female child advocate these days. The beautiful actress showed the world she was multi-talented when she droped a music single.

patience
Patience Ozokwo – Nigerian actress, Patience Ozokwor is one actress who is well respected among her peers for her great acting prowess. The award winning actress has also tried her hands in music like her peers, but it didn’t go past being just a single as it didn’t cut through.

The 57-year-old actress released the video for ‘Adaeze’, a single off her ‘Ojadili’ album in 2012. Watch the traditional themed video below.

anita6Anita Joseph – Anita Joseph is one actress who has managed to capture the heart of some Nollywoodfans because of her endowments.
