Former Big Brother Naija Housemate Uriel has shared why she gave up on her music career and why her name is ‘Uriel music star’.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, Uriel said she had wanted to be the next Tiwa Savage when she moved to Nigeria, but everything did not work out as planned.
Narrating an experience, Uriel said she was invited to perform at an event, and while at the stage, she was frightened and forgot to put on the microphone while singing.
However, someone came to inform her to put on the microphone, but later forgot the song’s lyric and ended up singing ‘Amazing Grace’.
Uriel added that she gave up on music after the encounter and vowed never to be involved in anything concerning music.
In her words: Those asking why my name is Uriel music star is because I wanted to be the next Tiwa savage back then. When I first moved to Nigeria. I remember the day I gave up music sha.
