A fund raising campaign has been launched for Nigerian singer, Cynthia Morgan, who has been missing in action in the music scene.
Morgan used to be popular reggae / dancehall artist before she disappeared from radar some years back.
The singer later reappeared briefly in 2018 with a song, while changing her stage name from Cynthia Morgan to ‘Madrina’ as part of her efforts to rebrand.

In a chat with Sydney Shocker on ‘LunchTime Friday‘ Morgan, whose looks has seriously changed, disclosed that she was down with a terrible illness and had a lot of family issues to deal with.
“Its been like a roller coaster for me. I took ill, I was really sick. When I changed my name, I had a lot of family issues. I had like a breakdown. So it was really hard for me. I actually went back to the studio but I wasn’t done, I still had to come back,” she said.
Now a Gofundme has been created with aim of bringing her back the one time ‘rude gal’ to the music industry.
The fundraiser was launched on Saturday night by Sandra Ogbebor, who says she runs a mental, emotional, and psychological health awareness program.
