Stella was born in Kenya however her family moved to Norway when she was five years old. Her family had to leave Kenya because her father, who is a journalist, wrote the unpleasant truth about the than Kenyan president Moi (which was a quite risky thing to do at that time). Therefore, her father decided to move the family to Norway where they got the political refugee status and later became the Norwegian citizens.
Nowadays she is one of the most popular female singers in Norway but Stella newer forgot where she is from. She is a proud African woman and she has a celebrity status in a number of African countries including her native Kenya, Senegal, Gambia, etc.
In 2011 this beautiful Kenyan young artist won the Melody Grand Prix 2011 (a Norwegian national music festival where the best Norwegian singers compete and the winner gets to represent Norway at the biggest European music festival of all times, the Eurovision Song Contest).
Stella’s favorite instrument is piano (she is a quite good pianist).
Mwangi in one sentence – Stella is a talented artist, a charming young lady and one of the hottest Kenyan exports.
