DESPITE being heavily pregnant, singer Omawumi Megbele, who released a new single, Butterflies, recently, did not let that stop her.
Posting a video on her Instagram page, Omawumi could be seen taking her lines beside Cobhams who was playing the keyboard and egging her on while they recorded Butterflies in a studio in Houston, Texas.
“8months pregnant with Fareed in @TierraStudios in Houston…@cobhamsasuquo said ‘omawumi this song can be on the same level with the best ballads in the world, just sing with sincerity and precision’. This was before the live strings came on.”
Butterflies is the first song she’s doing since being signed to a new record label, Cabal Entertainment, which is affiliated with Roc Nation, and owned by American hip hop star Jay-Z.
On Tuesday, Cobhams appreciated Omawumi and thanking her for being a part of it.
“@Omawumi Thanks for the opportunity to be part of an absolutely amazing project,” Cobhams tweeted.
“A defining album both for my career and for music.”
