Social media has been crazy these past few days because of a conflict in the Nigerian Music Industry, between an artist and her record label.
Now most of us do not know who she is but I am pretty sure you’ve heard her music before. (Unless you’re too young then, that’s fine).
Cynthia Morgan, once upon a time was the hottest thing in the Naija music scene. Everyone was certain she was going to become a big star…Just like we are all currently drooling over Rema, Joeboy, Naira Marley and all the other hot fresh Nigerian artistes.
Born Cynthia Ikponmwenosa Morgan, the dancehall artiste started singing at an early age, singing backup in her mum’s band and writing her own music.
In August 2013, she signed a recording contract with Northside Entertainment Inc owned by Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye (the older brother of the Psquare group) and launched her professional music career with two songs in 2014.
Cynthia Morgan was a badass dancehall artiste. Her style and persona were just perfect for showbiz.
She was super talented and came off as sassy and daring, was controversial and wild… the perfect recipe for greatness in the entertainment industry.
Her music was all over the airwaves, getting massive airplay, topping charts, getting nominations, winning awards, playing shows…living the life.
Until she vanished. Rumour had it that she was heavily in debt due to her lavish lifestyle but years later, she’s finally come out to tell her story claiming her record label, Northside Entertainment messed her up.
Her contract expired in 2017 but due to terms in the contract, she’s lost access to her name, social media accounts and her VEVO accounts .
She now goes by the name Madrina.
