Singer Omwumi, needs little or no introduction to people in and out of the country.

The mum of one recently sat down for an interview with The Sun where she talked about her first time in the labour room amongst many other first times in her life.

Read interview below:

First day on stage?

My first day on stage was during West Africa Idol in 2007. I had been on stage before but it was quite different. It was very good but I was nervous.  Anytime I want to go on stage, I’m still very nervous but I think it’s one of the things that make a good performer.

Your first award?

I don’t remember.  But one of the most prominent awards I won was a hip-hop award in 2009, which came with a KIA Optima.

First car?

It was a Toyota Rav 4 but the car don go somewhere. I no dey drive am again. I gave it out.

First trip abroad?

That was in 2007, when I attended the MOBO award with Timi Dakolo in London.

First day on an airplane?

Probably when I was a child. I no be mumu like that.

First designer outfit?

I don’t remember but I think I got it when I started appearing on TV.  I do remember my first designer shoes were Dolce and Gabbana.

First pet?

I love dogs but my first pet was a cat I named Oscar but e don die.

First kiss?

I don’t remember. Even if I did, it doesn’t concern anybody.

First time in labour room?

It was in June 2011. It was beautiful. It was God that just did it for me. I had already planned everything I wanted, but at the end of the day, I forgot everything. I forgot the breathing for contraction, I just dey do my own dey go. I gave birth in America and by the time the pain started I was speaking Pidgin English to the nurse. I didn’t spend more than four hours during labour. God is faithful.
