Bella

BIOGRAPHY

Mabel Oine Alubo, whose stage name is BELLA, is a Nigerian recording and performing artist. She was born on August 9th, 1993 in Jos, Plateau, Nigeria. 

Her early musical influences growing up were an interesting mix of different sounds from the likes of Eminem, Ray Boltz, Plantashun boiz, R-Kelly, Daddy Showkey Spice Girls and the Danfo Drivers.

At 12, she began writing poems to express her imaginations and life around her. When she turned 16, she was inspired by after listening to Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III album to write rap verses.

About a year later, she was persuaded to try out of modelling and pageantry, which earned her the place of 1st runner up at the 2010 Miss Tourism Plateau; and 3rd runner up, Miss Plateau in 2011.

The rise of fellow J-town bred artistes – M.I, Jesse Jagz and Iceprince – inspired Bella to take her passion for music, a bit more seriously, so she put out her first ever piece of work in 2012, which was a cover to Kanye West’s Theraflu.
