Zore Lebarty: Entertainers should mobilise resources to help other Nigerians
A United States-based Nigerian artiste and daughter of Ifeoma I want to marry you crooner, Felix Liberty, Omozore, better known as Zore Lebarty, has revealed that her legendary father’s music legacies inspire her to do timeless records.
According to Zore, who had worked behind the cameras and done promotions for artistes like Wizkid, Davido, and others in the U.S for many years, the acceptance of her father’s popular track helped to boost her popularity since she started music professionally five years ago.
She stated that her father’s relocation to the United States six years ago pushed her to take her music career further as she possessed the qualities of women in showbiz.
The multi-instrument player said she started off in the choir as a kid in New Jersey. “I started music as a hobby because I never had the confidence to perform in front of people or record my own songs. Before now, I used to be behind the scenes, even though I love music so much and I am an artiste myself.
“I was part of shows when Wizkid came to New York; my team was part of that show. Davido, Olamide, and I also worked as a promoter of other artistes when they came into our state to perform.
“So, my dad relocated to America permanently about six years ago. Since he has been here, he has been encouraging me to take music a step further, pointing out my personality which classified me as a showgirl,” Zore said.
The Baby Mo singer further said her kind of music, Afrobeat, was born out of her love for the African sounds, which appeal more to her.
“I will describe my genre of music as Afrobeat. Even though I live in America, my favourite music is Nigerian music. I am a big fan of everything in Africa. So, even if I am rapping you will feel the sound of African beat. I grew up listening to Tiwa Savage, Davido, and Yemi Alade but my favourite is Tiwa Savage.
“Watching them, I always wanted to do my own thing and show the world my love and the different style of Afrobeat.”
On the state of Nigeria’s economy, Zore said: “Music and entertainment, in general, can contribute to Nigeria’s economy in so many different ways.
“Once I become successful in music, I will be able to help so many people around me by creating jobs and contributing to the economy of the country. However, on helping Nigerians, I believe entertainers need to come together, put money together and be able to help out as much as we can.”
