You all know she doesnt really need any introduction but for those who dont know, just a few facts about this talented,beautiful,intelligent(She is studying Law...hin no easy oh abeg!!!)...do i really need to go on?!?!?!
Real name: Antonia Yetunde Alabi
Birthday : 21st of May
Education: Currently at the University of Lagos, Akoka (Unilag).
Discovered: @ Unilag's 'Girls Nite Out' annual talent hunt.
Fun fact : She is also a fashion designer with her own line 'Eclectic'.

Now on with the INTERVIEW!!!ENJOY!!!

Naija Vixen:
Hey watz guud Sasha?And why "Sasha"?Is there a little history behind your stage name?

Sasha:Well strange as it seems there is! I'd been rapping with a group of family friends for a while and everyone had a stage name except me, one afternoon i was trying to get some sleep then i started hearing a voice whisper sasha repeatedly and i finally got up to write it down ,I discovered recently that its actually a nickname for one of my names 'Alexzandra' which is a very strong and positive name so i believe the name SASHA is a vision i've been charged to actualise.

Naija Vixen: Tell us about the new album which is coming out soon,and whatz the history behind the title?

Sasha: My new album , which is actually my debut album contrary to popular views is titled FIRST LADY, the concept behind this is simple. Sasha as a brand is generally concerned with female empowerment and speaking for my generation, i believe strongly in being a positive influence to my generation and beyond , I have never been afraid to express my views on the ills of the society no matter who is listening, i represent the Strong. Black and female members of this society, FIRST LADY epitomises what i'm about , because when you think about the most influential woman in any state or country the name instantly comes to mind.My album is a blend of different genres of music, on it i explore jazz , r and B , dancehall and basically seek to establish my musical versitility while sharing my experiences over the past few years.

Naija Vixen: Why has your album taken so long to drop?

Sasha: It would be normal to assume that switching labels had something to do with it , but i basically believe that everything happens for a reason, i have been managing my career in tow with my law degree and it hasn't been easy, so i believe the timing has just never been perfect, this is my first album and i'd rather do it right or not do it at all.

NV: What kind of genres are covered in the album?is it all party jams,or are there some slow flows there as well?

Sasha:It is definitely not a party album, as much as i love to dance i take my social responsibility very seriously and I believe that when the dancing stops this generation needs music that they can sit down and learn something positive from, i hope this album will be able to achieve that and entertain it's listeners at the same time!Not to say that there are no songs you can dance to but i'd like to think it's a reasonable blend..lol!

NV: Are your songs going 2 be available on the internet?Like itunes or any other online music stores?

Sasha:Definitely, we are looking into all avenues to ensure that my music is availabe to all my fans who have been wonderfully patient....{bow}

NV: Your last single "Emi le gan" was well received,got massive airplay but was poorly promoted.Why was that?

Sasha: Hahaha, brilliant question, well the truth is , it was not promoted at all! I did the television and radio distribution myslef and it was only a single, seeing as my album is still not out that explains why it was not on sale, so Emi le gan was merely a media release at best, but i thank everyone who made it popular all the same!

NV: What's going to be different this time to make sure that it gets well promoted?

Sasha: I will be releasing an album into the market and not just the media.LOL

NV: Now speaking of "Emi le gan",that song killed it big time and is still rocking the air waves,did you expect it to blow up that big?

Sasha: Well yes and no, i hear, i dream with giants but i do everything i do expecting the very best , nonetheless i was completely overwhelmed by the extent to which it propelled my career, that song is indeed the foundation for what i am today and i'd like to say at this point that nobody should be afraid to dream big because if you believe in yourself the actualisation of those dreams will be a handsome surprise.

NV: Are there any collaborations on this album?

Sasha: Yes there are , i'll name two my second single 'Not tonite' featuring my label mate Naeto-c, and the first rap song i ever wrote 'Let me go' featuring mulit-talent ASA

NV: Apart from you,Weird Mc,Kemistry and Bouquie,naija female rappers are lyk a rarity...so which female rappers do you think are doing well now?

Sasha: Well i don't know that many apart from the ones you've already mentioned but i think Blaise is extremely talented and i'm sure we'll all be hearing a lot more about her pretty soon.

NV: Why do you think it's difficult for women to break into the rap game?

Sasha: i dont think it's difficult, women just have to be more decisive and aggressive about what they want, the industry is still not equally represented by the nigerian Female so there is ample room for any talented rap artist and singer alike.

NV: So what do u bring to the table?Whatz unique about you?

Sasha:I believe there's still a lot my fans are yet to be acquainted with, i love to entertain, and the message in my music is definitely different from anything we have out there,i could go on and on but if i have to pick one, i'd settle for the subject matter of my music, which is depth no matter what i write i always maintain that anybody listening should be able to single out atleast one thing that they can either relate to or learn from.

NV: Have you ever gone out and danced to your own music?Be honest...LOL!

Sasha: Shamelessly yes, but i must confess it's kinda weird when i'm not performing it...lol!

NV: Now you've been doing this for years,no-one can say you're new to this,you used to rap in high school apparently,so what's the one thing you've learned so much?

Sasha: i have learned that there's only one thing that keeps an artiste in the picture, consistency, honesty in your music and by that i mean a true represntation of yorself and dedicated hardwork.

NV: List 5 songs you are jammin to right now?
1.30 something - Jay z
2. Hollywood - Jay z and Beyonce
3. The entire Banky Wellington album
4. Upgrade u Beyonce ft Jay z
5. The entire tuface album

NV: Weirdest fan experience or fan mail?
Sasha:Too many to choose from! Does a marriage proposal count?LOL

NV: Is there anything else you'd like your fans to know?

Sasha:That i appreciate their patience and by the special Grace of God , FIRST LADY will drop this year and it will not be a dissappointment.

NV: Now some word association...I'll say a word and you have to say the first thing
that comes to your mind...play fair!!!

Naija- babes ...lol
Eldee -the Don
Music -is the food of love..play on{shakespeare}lol
Love -is blind
Storm records-all day, everyday
Tha Trybe- La famille

Baz Bamigboye is a British gossip columnist and arts reviewer,who mainly writes for the Daily Mail group of newspapers.His reviews are often quoted in well-regarded secondary reviews The Guardian,The Daily Telegraph and the BBC.He was given the "Showbusiness Reporter of the Year" award at the British Press Awards in 2003.Numerous TV appearances include Club Mix on Channel 4 and Jack and Baz on BSkyB and appearances on US TV.He is the son of Bamidele Bamigboye,the Oba of Iresi.In July 1985 he married Patricia Evans from Australia.


Born in London to a Nigerian father and a British/Jewish mother,Sophie is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the film industry and although she might be relatively new to some of us,she could be called a seasoned actress since she's been acting for almost 20 years now.Her touching turn as a sympathetic prostitute in "Dirty Pretty Things" also starring Chiwetel,was what proved to be her breakout role in film.Her performance in the movie made Terry George cast her in "Hotel Rwanda" which garnered critical acclaim and numerous nominations and awards.She also had a role in "Aeon Flux" with Charlize Theron,even though it wasnt the best film ever,she still held her own.And her recent turn in "Tsunami: The Aftermath" was very moving leading to more awards for her.

Chiwetel Ejiofor is a 33 year old award-winning British film and stage actor who certainly doesnt need much introduction based on the simple fact that he actually is a great actor,he is able to switch from the baddie to the guy who clutches at your heart strings seamlessly.He has pretty much worked with all the heavy weights in the film industry on both sides of the pond--Steven Spielberg's 1997 film "Amistad",Spike Lee's "Inside Man" with Denzel,Joss Whedon's cult sci-fi "Serenity",Richard Curtis' "Love Actually",Julian Jarrold's "Kinky Boots" in which he plays a transvestite...no really!,Stephen Frears's "Dirty Pretty Things", Woody Allen's "Melinda & Melinda" and his fantastic turn in John Singleton's "Four Brothers"...PHEW!!!

Ejiofor's performance in Tsunami:The Aftermath received a 2007 Golden Globe nomination for Best actor in a mini-series or film made for TV.He is currently performing on stage in The Seagull at the Royal Court Theatre from 18 January to 17 March 2007.


A beautiful British actress of biracial heritage(Scottish mother and a Nigerian father),Carmen Ejogo began her career as a child appearing in a music video at age eight.She did loads of stage and tv work and had stints as a TV host and veejay before she got the role of Eddie Murphy's love interest in the predictable action comedy "Metro"(1997).2000 proved to be her year when she got the coveted title role in the four-hour CBS miniseries "Sally Hemmings: An American Scandal" and garnered good notices for her portrayal of the slave with whom Thomas Jefferson carried on a four decade romance and later that year,she appeared in Kenneth Branagh's "Love's Labour's Lost".

Carmen hasnt really appeared much on screen since she met her future husband Jeffrey Wright when they were cast opposite one another as Coretta Scott King and Martin Luther King Jr. in the 2001 HBO drama "Boycott" and they have one son together now,Elijah.

Echikunwoke means "leader of men" and for some reason i'm glad she didnt adopt another name and kept her Nigerian name.
