A couple of months ago i noticed that most of the Naija rock songs i really liked turned out to be those of CLAY. And its still true. I have ‘Nenum’ on repeat on my iPod. There’s also ‘Zoputam’, ‘Lemanya’ and the latest ‘Down’. So i figured how about i write a little something about her.

Here, 10 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CLAY: 

1. Her real name is Bianca Adanna Okorocha

2. She is the eldest daughter of a businessman and a banker

3. At the age of 8, Clay was already part of her local church choir.

4. Clay was only 12 when she started writing songs. Such a clever kid!

5. She’s a self-taught guitar player

6. Clay was originally pursuing a career as a professional dancer before she transitioned into music. She’s gone on tours with 2 Face and Ruggedman as a dancer. She also starred as the lead girl in the video, ‘Onyinye’ by Obiwon

7. Clay has said on song writing that, ”its easiest to write songs when her writing ‘switch’ comes on. I just write when i feel like writing”

8. Clay admits that she has tribal marks, ”I have tribal marks on both sides of my face…though they are gradually fading with age”

9. Do you want to know the fastest way to Clay’s heart? Unless you’re a good cook yourself, you better find a way to buy her Eba and Afang soup with plenty stock fish, meat, kpomo and periwinkle. She loves it!

10. Clay is a great fan of these Naija rock bands: 1 Last Autograph, Phrance and Threadstone.
