Most celebs going into music from other profession usually don’t find it funny and Munachi Abii is not an exemption . She became popular when she emerged the winner of the 2007 edition of the prestigious Most Beautiful Girl in Nigerian, MBGN, organized by Ben Bruce led Silverbird Group.
After the competition, she gained spotlights and grabbed an endorsement deal with popular toilet soap as its brand ambassador. The same product once had Nollywood star, Genevieve Nnaji, as its brand ambassador until she was dropped.
As an ex-beauty queen and a model too, Muna Abii was unable
to force herself into the minds of many Nigerians as an A-list star. Later, she delved into music, though she has reportedly been doing music right from her secondary days, but she was not known with that profession.
When it came to public knowledge that the light-skinned pretty damsel was into rap, many crossed their fingers to see if she would make any impact in that field.
Some months ago, she was in a hot altercation with respected Nigerian rapper, Mode Nine, which almost ruined her music career. She was reportedly forced to apologize to the ‘king’ of Nigeria rap music after the face-off.
Years after being in the music industry without getting her way into the mainstream, some fans have lambasted Muna and have also advised her to quit music and look for other profession to do because they alleged that her calling is not in music.
A cross-section of people spoken to by First Weekly reveals that they still wonder what the former beauty is still doing in the highly competitive music industry in Nigeria, where many talented artistes are struggling to make a name for themselves and have no gotten the breakthrough.
“I wonder what she (Muna) is still doing in the music industry, she should not waste her time anymore doing music because there is no place for her in the industry,” one music buff told us.
Commenting on one of her interviews online, one ’Mr Gentleman’, who commented on a popular blog wrote, “She’s beautiful and high spirited, but not a very good music artiste. Quit music Muna, and move on to other profitable stuff. You’ll do well, I’m sure.”
Another said, “music is not her calling, but I know she has a passion for it. She is beautiful anyday.”
It is believed that Muna is still passionate and optimistic that she would make it big in the music industry. As at press time, effort to speak with her or her management were not successful as our calls were not picked when contacted.
