Sometimes, we just see stars in the sky, beautiful and pronounced, very bright and breathtaking, and we can’t help but wonder, at the intrinsic make-up, the consistency of the Maker, and what the star represents. The stars in the sky are not much different from the stars in human form who rise out of nowhere, take our breaths away and continue to dominate the stage for a very long time.
Recently we have had our very own share of such stars, virtually from every field of human endeavor, from sports, literature, to politics and lately to entertainment. In music,
Nigeria boasts a collective array of great talent, who have helped take the African music industry global, and new talent keeps coming up on regular basis, and one of such talent that has seemingly burst out of her gestation pod is none other than LizzyLu.
Born Elizabeth Luwide, LizzyLu who hails from the Southern part of Nigeria, precisely Rivers state took our attention unannounced when she released her first studio single ‘Oluwa Sure Pass’(produced by RelexSoundz) in early 2015. It was such a great first effort at commercial music that, the sultry female act began to get invitation to shows which ordinarily would have taken her a lot of time to get into.
Within the first few weeks of release, LizzyLu performed ‘Oluwa Sure Pass’ at Skales’ Man of the Year South-East album launch.
While still receiving radio and television rotations across popular radio and TV stations including Hip TV, LizzyLu was invited to perform at the just concluded biggest comedy show in the South-East, theOwerri Must Laugh comedy show alongside contemporary acts like Lil Kesh, Korede Bello, and others.

During the Owerri Must Laugh event, LizzyLu wowed and gained a whole lot of new fans, and generously introduced her second recorded single ‘O.B.E.Y’ which was released not long ago‘O.B.E.Y’, which was produced by another enigmatic producer, features a dancehall/reggae music star, Brownshuga and trended continuously for more than 48hours on twitter.
It was a sharp contrast to her first single ‘Oluwa Sure Pass’ and with this, LizzyLu brought to the fore, her versatility and flexibility that is a major requirement for longevity in the music industry. ‘O.B.E.Y’was widely circulated on the internet, got featured on Nigeria and Africa’s top entertainment blogs including TooXclusive, NotJustOk, 360Nobs, NaijaLoaded, NaijaReplay, and other such major online platforms.
As expected, O.B.E.Y has also started getting radio airplays, club features, and a lot more attention than would have been expected. With the video in it’s final stages, ‘O.B.E.Y’ will sure count as another successful outing by the artiste. So what next after this? you may ask.
Surely, LizzyLu assures never to disappoint. She is currently in the studio with one of Nigeria’s biggest stars (this should be a surprise), and the feelers are pointing to something massive coming up pretty soon. Good people, you may just want to keep this girl on your watchlist. It will be worth it!
In her words, the former beauty queen cum actress, promises to ‘bring something new to the table each time’. LizzyLu sure has other inclinations to her abilities, as she has featured in more than three Nollywood blockbuster movies within the last one year which includes ‘Most Wanted Nurses’ amongst others. Though, it will best in her best interest not to rest on her oars, thanks a very competitive industry, But with her team of great management, production and PR efforts, we can be sure that within one year, we would have gotten ourselves a new star, coming very fast out of the horizon.
