Generously kind and empathetic, Christopher Wisdom Chimela (born March 1, 1992) is a talented Nigerian singer and songwriter with the stage name Mela. The self-taught rising star hails from Umuahia, Abia State, Nigeria, and is currently based in Lagos, Nigeria.  Mela has been passionate about music since 2012.  He would often find himself drawn tremendously to heartfelt songs from established artists.

Mela is not only surrounded by creative influences like 2face and Akon but also inspired by them. He infuses subtle Afrobeat and yet, soul-searching R&B vocals to birth a contemporary unique melody and rhythm, which consciously create a spectacular brand of music that is not only inspiring but empathetic.

As opposed to being a mostly self-taught artist, not bagging formal musical skills through professional learning wasn’t possible, Mela couldn’t further with his secondary school certificate due to financial constraints. He found himself in a pool of hardship he never wanted.

Ever since then, he has been drawn to these harsh realities that are constantly peeking from his environment. The need to take the bull by the horns arises, and he decided to publicize his musical art. Music becomes his medium of choice with which daily harsh struggles demonstrated in adulthood are highlighted.

With the hope of resonating with those going through these hardships, he found his musical space with CASI RECORDS and recorded his first single “Iwe”.

In his words, “Iwe”

“came when I realized that as an adult, the more you strive to make a living, the more problems and responsibilities are piling up from different angles… so I felt the need to cry out.”

His soon- to-be-released single is a lyrical blend of intriguing Afro-R&B laced with meaningful content and messages.

If there is a great singer ready to not only hone his musical skills but become a great voice in the entertainment world, there is a talent-oriented record label ready to make these possible. Casi Records is a record label incorporated on 12 September 2022 and located at Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

To say the fast-emerging Nigerian entertainment company was founded by Egbuchiem Anthony is very accurate- but it doesn’t tell the whole story. The record label came into existence following the death of two excellent sources of strength that built the bridge for Egbuchiem Anthony to cross. CASI is a coalition of these historical figures- the aunt and niece.

Legendary singer, Kathy Brown diagnosed with stage four lung cancer

Published

on

Legendary house music singer, Kathy Brown has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer with the disease spreading to her brain.

The American singer, 63, known for songs including Turn Me Out (Turn to Sugar) and Strings of Life (Stronger on My Own) was diagnosed late last year after being admitted to ICU in her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.

Doctors performed surgery to try and reduce swelling in Brown’s brain – with the star currently undergoing a course of radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Kathy’s daughter Chanta Joyner has set up a GoFundMe to fund medical expenses and monthly bills for the family.

Chanta wrote: ‘As the news is only just sinking in we are already facing the harsh reality of what this means for my mother – not only the physical and medical challenges but also the many financial ones.

‘Like most artists who have devoted their careers to dance music, without being able to perform LIVE there’s little to no chance of earning an income. My mother has poured her heart and soul onto stages and dance floors all over the world for more than thirty years, and now she needs your love and support more than ever.

‘My siblings and I are going to do everything we can to take care of her, but the costs we are facing with medical expenses and monthly bills are overwhelming.

‘My mom deserves the best care and comfort that money can buy. I know that she has thousands of fans all over the world who adore her voice and her beautiful spirit.

‘Please consider contributing to assist Kathy and get her through the weeks and months ahead. The London-based record label ‘Revival’ that she has recently been working with has offered to match contributions up to $10,000.

‘Let’s show my mom that the dance music community really is an extended family who keep each other lifted not only in the good times but the hard times too. Thank you for the love, support and many messages that you have been posting and sending to Kathy. I promise you that she sees every single one, and they mean so very much to her.

Brown originally found fame as the chart-topping lead singer of the group Praxis before having US dance hits on her own.

In 1999 she climbed to #4 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with Joy and in 2004 was the credited lead vocalist on the British act Soul Central’s Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own), a track that samples Rhythm Is Rhythm’s 1989 House classic.

Over the years she featured on dozens of house and club singles.
