NNENA omali was born in the eighties in eastern Nigeria.She hails from the vast rich countryside of Uga village in Anambra state,Nigeria.She is the last child in a family of 5.Having lost her father at the tender age of twelve Nnena found herself being raised by her mother who is a retired nurse.She strongly believes that she got her musical talents from her mom whom she says sings like a nightingale.She had always dreamt of being an artiste and started out singing as a hobby at the age of ten with a three girl choir group in high school.She did her first DEMO which she called ENRAPTURE in 2002 with the hit track called 'SO'.Did her first hit single called MISSIN' in 2004.She started out with an explosive performance at the MTN Y'HELLO FEST CONCERT in eastern Nigeria and since then she has been unstoppable!! From her words she confesses:"my music is a doorway to my soul which opens up a world of consciousness which feeds your own soul leaving you totally overwhelmed and satisfied".A poet,a didactic storyteller,an inspiring songstress,an energetic dancer,prolific songwriter and guitarist.Writing songs to Nnena Omali is a spiritual and transcendental experience!Her passionate love for music is accentuated through the way she delivers.She feels her songs very deeply and writes them with a flare that is amazing!She adores her guitar and even has a name for it.With such a loving personification of her favourite instrument she calls it 'OMALI' adapted from the word "omalicha" in her IBO dialect which means "beautiful".She also attaches this alias to her name,another reflection of her love for the instrument and a reflection of what she aspires.She says:"Beauty to me is not all about the booty.Beauty is not totally about great looks and lots of oomph! Beauty is about the you in you which makes the you,you are.Beauty is internal! I intend to always: be me,be beautiful and make beautiful music"Besides the guitar Nnena Omali also plays the piano.Besides a career in Music she also has a career in writing prose and poetry,another of her numerous talents which she believes she got from her late father who was a writer and educationist in his lifetime.Besides being an instrumentalist,songwriter,writer and singer Nnena is also a part-time music producer.One of the things she finds satisfying and overwhelming so far is the immense support her family has given her,contributing so wonderfully to the success of her career.On her inspiration Nnena says:"God is first of all my divine custodian and mentor.He brings the melodies to my dreams and sends his adoring angels to advise on the lyrics and the best way to deliver them to the world.My music is beyond music" she says."It's a mission and God is the mastermind.I am also enthralled by nature.it inspires me.flowers,trees,birds and cool water.i'm a nature addict.I'm also inspired by my emotions and personal experiences as well as my various desires to pursue a cause and finish it.On her beliefs she says;i believe in GOD,i believe in LOVE,I believe in BEING MYSELF EVEN IF IT MEANS BEING ODD AND MYSTERIOUS AND ECCENTRIC.EVEN ECCENTRICITY CAN BE ECLECTIC.
