Biography of Stella Mwangi & Net Worth 2021.
Stella Nyambura Mwangi (born 1 September 1986) is a Kenyan-Norwegian singer. Much of her music concerns the situation in her home country Kenya, and discrimination her family had to endure after moving to Norway in 1991. Her work has been used in films such as American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile and Save the Last Dance 2, and also in TV series such as CSI: NY and Scrubs. In Norway, she won the Melodi Grand Prix 2011, and in that same year represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Early and personal life
Stella was born in Murang’a in Central Province of Kenya in 1986 and spent her first 5 years there before her family moved to Eidsvoll in Norway in 1991. She started to practice playing music when she was eight years old. She also plays the piano. Her father made sure she and her siblings learned the Gikuyu language and Swahili even far away from home. He used cultural music and poetry to teach them the languages and this inspired Stella’s music and her connection to the Kenyan culture.
Mwangi’s father was killed in a hit-and-run accident in February 2012.
