About Monica

So glad you looked this way! This is the profile of a Norwegian-Nigerian artist with 15 years experience as a stage performer. As co-founder and member of Norway's first all female, all black arts collective, Queendom, since 1999, I have been part of a movement for diversity and artistic freedom in a both progressive and challenging environment. Pr 2015 we have produced 6 stage performances, released a book (satire) and a musical album, received the Cultural Award from the City of Oslo - and performed for thousands of people of all ages and social backgrounds - from Nobel Laureates and the Royal family, to everyday Joe and Jane Schmoes. I recently released my solo album "Keep It Solid", and the single "Tomfoolery" is on heavy rotation. Currently, I am working on my third script, a period piece set in Boston and England, where a young woman finds herself in the middle of powerful social and personal changes. And on the production of Queendom's Second album.
