Hi readers, it’s another amazing day around Lady T’s world and above all it is Wednesday. You should get used to meeting my #WomanCrushWednesday henceforth and today, lady T shines the spotlight on Cameroonian award-winner Myra Maimoh.
Myra Maimoh was born in Bamenda, the North West Region of Cameroon (in West Central Africa) where she grew up in an average Christian family home with her parents and siblings. With her mother being her greatest musical influence through the records she owned, Myra Maimoh grew up with artists such as Skeeter Davies, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong. She was also heavily influenced by her Mother’s love for African blues through to Country music, traditional African music to Jazz and pop and it was no surprise that Myra started singing and dancing, while still in preschool at the age of 3.
