In a recent interview with Punch, reggae/dancehall queen, Cynthia Morgan talked about her career, achievement and more.
On her personal background, the singer said “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.”
About her complexion, Cynthia said “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.”
On competition in the music industry, Cynthia said “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.”
On her achievements, Morgan said “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”
Cynthia said she’s not ready for love now and she’s in love with her music. “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.”
On her Fashion “I am crazy about colognes and wrist watches. The most expensive item in my wardrobe is a wristwatch which cost me N12m.”
