Previously of KUSH music group, gospel artiste, Lara George is renowned for her hit track, ‘Dansaki’. The once-upon-time plus sized lady has trimmed down and looks gorgeous!
Reminiscing on her career journey, Lara, who is currently on a United
States musical tour,studied Architecture at the University of Lagos,
where she joined the fellowship music team on campus. There, she met
TY Bello, Emem Emma, and Dapo Torimiro.
Then, the musical group called KUSH, was born.
But just when the group was about to have a firm grip on the pulse of
gospel music in the country, the unexpected happened— they broke up! It
was a shattering experience not only to the trio of Ty, Lara and Emem
but also to their fans.
TY Bello is now a photographer and Lara, still into gospel music.
As she marks her 39th birthday today, June 23, Lara writes:
“I reminisce and can only be thankful. So much to be thankful for. I
would say professionally, it was 20years ago when God first placed me on
this musical path I walk on today. 19years old, naive but hopeful, I
stumbled onto destiny, and my life has not been able the same since. In
the year 2000, a phenomenal thing happened to me. I got signed on; with
the group I was a part of, to a US-based record label. Before then, I
had never even considered music to be a possibility for me, at least not
full-on. All of a sudden, here I was, googly eyed, along with my team
mates, touring the world; playing festivals and concerts we could only
describe and at best show pictures of. You see, instagram didn’t exist
then. There was no twitter or Snapchat, and Facebook had only barely
begun, I believe. As a group, we needed to take the world, one person at
a time (or so it seemed at the time at least), and that was what we set
out to do. Funny shebi? We set out to do it because we didn’t think we
couldn’t. I look here today, and I see how far God has brought me. And I
can only be thankful. Thankful because I must never take for granted,
His mercies, His love, His faithfulness to me and mine. Not everyone who
sets out comes this far. And yet I know that I have only just begun! In
my life, every disappointment has become a blessing, every challenge
has turned into breakthrough, every limitation has been used by God to
cause Him to surpass my expectations and every stone that has ever been
thrown at me has turned mid-flight into an instrument of good rather
than evil. So far, God has confuted for me every tongue that has ever
risen against me in judgement, and He has caused even my enemies to be
at peace with me. How can I not be thankful? So I’m sending my Heavenly
Father a special shout-out on this special day….. Thank you Jesus for
being so good to me!!!!! *doingAJiggyDance* #Dansaki #June23rd
