I am Sharon Watmai, I am 21 years old, I was born in Cameroon AND I am the last child from my mum and dad as far as I am aware. I have been singing since the age of 9 and I grew up with the passion, because that was the best way I could express my self. The stage to me feels like home. I had been to the studio few times as a child to do back up tracks for some of our pastors. My church was a very musical church and they sang mostly American kind of praises, which is one of the reasons why I sing the way I do and the songs I sing.
I started writing songs at a very young age; Writing has always been my strong point. I believe that I write better than I speak, interestingly I use to write story books in my secondary school but just for fun , infact I thought I would be a STORY WRITER because It was so easy for me to create a story and even more interesting was the fact that when I had something important to tell my parent I would write a letter and leave it on their tables to read. I always felt better writing.
I moved to the UK in 2010 to relocate with my mum. Once again I continued singing in church, I had a lot of challenges with the kind of songs tht I compsed and many times I was trapped between choosing if I was gospel or circular. This explains why my first album, which I am working on now, is titled TWO SIDES OF ME.
I decided to take music seriously when I left my mom’s house, in early 2013, with just a bag. I came to Birmingham and in the first month I looked for a studio, to listen to what I sounded like, it was my first time been in the studio since I was a kid. It was an exciting moment for me , but I didn’t have enough money to pay for studio times then, so I had to do two jobs to pay my rents, which was not exactly easy because I had never lived on my own , talkless of paying bills,
. I was told a couple of times to try xfactor and in 2014 I did, unfortunately I didn’t make it through the second stage to me that was the NO which made me stayed strong in the game. That No , got me motivated more than ever, I had my music name Shaz which is a short for Sharon and a combination with Jazz, =Shaz.
presently , I am doing my under grad in UCB studying marketing and events management. Finishing the course in a year and after that I am looking to push my music stronger.
