Mo’cheddah is one of Nigeria’s stylish female celebrity. Born Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola on October 16, 1990 in Lagos, Nigeria, Mo’Cheddah is a Nigerian rapper, singer, song writer, fashion designer and has recently launched a clothing line, Mo’cheddah Clothing.


She released her debut studio album, Franchise Celebrity (2010), while signed to Knighthouse Entertainment. The album was preceded by the 2009 promotional single “If You Want Me”. She parted ways with Knighthouse in February 2012 and established her own label, Cheddah Music.


Mo’Cheddah is one of the Nigerian female celebrities who keeps up with trends, but the uniqueness of her style is that she makes the trends her own. Mo’cheddah basically owns her outfit. Every piece and combination has something of her style and personality. Mo’cheddah is her own makeup artist and stylist, having mastered the art herself. I think her signature look is a matte tomato red lipstick.


Mo’cheddah has won awards for her soulful music. She won the 2010 MTV Africa Music Awards for Best New Artist and the Channel O Music Video Awards for Best Female Video “If You Want Me” (featuring Othello). In 2011, she was nominated for The Headies Hip Hop World Revelation of the Year award and also nominated in 2014 for the ELOY Awards, Female Music Artist.


Mo’cheddah has a strong fashion presence in Nigeria’s film, music and fashion industry and is our style icon for this week.
