Yvonne Akuabata Ogbuogu aka StormRex was born in Eastern Nigeria, and is a graduate of Biochemistry from ESUT, Enugu.
StormRex started out her music career with a girl band in 2007/2008. Do you remember the very hot female group from about 2008? The Desperate Chicks
They sort of went cold after releasing the album “Tell Dem” a massive hit mostly in the East. Their lead-singer, StormRex, decided to go solo and released her debut album, “The New Storm” under her indie imprint in 2010.
Unfortunately, the album was a failure even though it carried popular features such as Flavour and Phyno, due to failure to promote her music. In 2010, StormRex signed a deal with Afro Gold Entertainment to release an album titled Freedom.
StormRex collaborates with a variety of artists. She has teamed up with artists such as Flavour, Phyno, Olamide and illbliss, to mention but a few. She sings mainly in the Igbo dialect and has a unique voice that is so desirable with the music that she creates.
In 2014, Stormrex signed a record deal with Penthauze Muzik; home to Phyno and many more celebrated artists.
StormRex continues to make music, which is a pure delight to her audience both at home and abroad.
