My name is Cynthia Morgan and I am 23 years old. I am a musician and I was raised by a single mother, Sherifat Morgan She is a gospel artiste based in Benin City, Edo State. I had a beautiful childhood where my mum was firm yet loving; she played the role of a father to my siblings and I. She is my biggest fan. I haven’t completed my university education. I took a break to concentrate on my musical career.
Music for me began at the age of seven. I started in the children’s choir, after which I moved to the youth choir and later joined the Christian Union choir. I began putting out music at the age of 16 and I recorded a six -track demo album. I released my debut single with General Pype titled ‘Dotty Stepping’ at the age of 17. In 2012, I met Jude Okoye in Atlanta; he appreciated my talent, took an interest in my career and signed me to his label, Northside INC.

My mum is a gospel artiste, so she obviously understands my craft. Many expected me to become a gospel artiste like my mum but that isn’t possible because that is not my calling. She appreciates my style of music and is my greatest fan. A lot of people do not know that I have an alter ego which is the cool-headed Cynthia Morgan.
Queen Ure and I
I do not have much to say about her; she wanted relevance and I gave it to her. I am actually very glad I was able to help her because I gave her more followers and exposure. She rode on my fame to make a name for herself. How could she claim to own a song that doesn’t exist on the Internet?
People who complain about my skin tone are clearly those who do not know me very well. I did not bleach my skin and one thing they fail to understand is that you can’t remain the same forever. The only constant thing in life is change and I have grown into a beautiful young woman.
I am a proud, beautiful Nigerian lady who is comfortable in her own skin. I am free to post anything on the social media .Whatever I post depends on my mood and what I would love to share with my fans at that point in time. Anyone who feels offended should unfollow me. I don’t read the negative comments because it doesn’t matter to me.
I am a distinct artiste who does not feel threatened by any other female artiste. I believe in my talent and my capabilities. I don’t see competition; all I see are opportunities to excel in my craft and in the Nigerian music industry. I don’t jump on the bandwagon blindly; rather I set standards for others to follow. I admire all the talented Nigerian artistes who stand out.
My performance at the ‘Headies’ 2014 earned me a standing ovation. My track KuchiKuchi was featured on American music artiste, Gucci Mane’s 2013 March mix tape. The mix tape also featured top American artistes like Lil Wayne, 2Chains, Future and Waka Flocka
I am in a relationship with my music so I do not have time for a lover at the moment. My man needs to understand me perfectly and appreciate my personality first as an artiste and then, as Cynthia Morgan.
I think my height and my talent are the greatest assets I possess. I am unique in several ways.
I am crazy about colognes and wrist watches. The most expensive item in my wardrobe is a wristwatch which cost me N12m.
