Nigerian Reggae and Dancehall star, Cynthia Morgan, has disclosed why she stayed away from the spotlight due to an ailment and some family issues.

She stated this in an Instagram live chat with Sandra Ogbebor, adding that she suffered depression. She also announced that she had left Square Records, owned by the defunct P-Square, and that she had also changed her stage name. She will now be known as Madarina.

She stated that it was not easy working with Jude Okoye, when she was at Square records and also couldn’t control her social media handle.

Square Records was co-owned by the twins, Peter and Paul Okoye (P-Square) and their older brother Jude Okoye.

When the brothers split following protracted family quarrels in 2017, Peter said he tried to sign Morgan to a new label he had created but she declined the offer.

Peter in his response to the dancehall artiste’s post Sunday wrote: “And some people thought I was stupid when I made the right decision [to leave Paul and Jude]. My dear C Morgan! It’s never too late to be what you might have been. God will surely see you through and carry you through the storm. Keep believing”.

He added: “My dear C Morgan, the decision I made 3yrs ago was never about the [fame], money or power! It was for my FREEDOM! Sad you rejected the contract I gave u. Just because they made you see me like the bad egg. I pray you understand that God has a purpose for everything. Never give up.

“The Truth shall prevail. God will surely see you through C Morgan… Gnight.”
