Mandy was brought up in the Northern part of England by an Igbo father and English mother. She visited Lagos, Nigeria for the first time at the age of 9 where she lived and studied.
At the age of 15 Mandy secured a record contract with Faze 2 Records, which was the hip, cutting-edge independent label at the time.
Mandy represented our generation with her poppy electro-boogie NYC freestyle sound. Her first album was Breakthrough, which contained the monster hit and record breaking single - "Taxi Driver".
Mandy cut another album - All My Love soon after, which was also a big hit. Just before her 19th birthday, Mandy vanished from the scene. In her words she left “to explore the world”. She relocated to Nigeria recently after almost two decades living in the UK.
Mandy who hails from Asaba is an extremely committed and professional Writer, Presenter & Singer. She is a graduate of the London Academy of Media, Film & TV.
Mandy has appeared on the UK's Channel 4 and has worked on set design and programming for the GOD Channel. She recorded with the world famous Soul2Soul team and performs internationally (and locally) at Private, Corporate and Gospel conventions.
