Hey there fellow good music lover!!! Welcome to the maiden edition of our monthly Truth Music digest. The Truth Music digest is an online mag which has the sole purpose of shining the spot-light on current Music, Lifestyle and Event trends making waves in the Music/Entertainment Industry. This month, special focus is on a fast rising star who seemed to be on everyone’s lips towards the end of last year. This month we will be taking a journey with Winifred to find out more about her personal life, career and plans for the future.
I have known Winifred for three months now and if asked on the spot to say 3 things i know about her i would not have to think before mentioning the following;
1. WINIFRED LOVES NATURE.
2. WINIFRED LOVES MUSIC.
3. WINIFRED LOVES LOVE.
Yeah! that’s all i knew at first until the recent interview I had with her over the holidays. Although it was not a one on one interview due to the fact that she had to travel to go enjoy her family and mother-nature in her hometown – Benin, thank God for email and good internet which came in handy.
The first time i heard Dear John – Wait For Me Reply which she made in response to Johnny Drille’s Wait For Me, i knew this was “pure talent” and really anticipated meeting her and hearing more content. My wait was certainly worth it. Join me on this journey as we sail through Winfred’s world as she exposes more about her life, career and expectations.
Q: SO WINIFRED, EVERY ARTISTE HAS THAT “MUSIC START-UP STORY” TO TELL, HOW DID MUSIC BEGIN FOR YOU?
I cannot really pin point the year or age I started music. All I know is, I grew up loving music. I come from a family that loves music so much. Those days my four siblings and I would all sit in the living room to sing worship songs and hymns taking different parts. Because of my tiny voice I always took soprano, lol. I also started writing songs at a tender age. I was never taught, it came to me naturally. My daddy also used to play the Accordion when he was alive. Although, I never listened to him play but I heard stories and I have seen pictures. Growing up, I joined the children choir in my local church and then the teenage choir and then the youth choir. At every phase of my life, I always identified with music no matter how small the platform was. So all that helped to shape my calling as a musician. At some point I knew that I was made for music and nothing would stop me from achieving it. That was how it all began.
