Below is an excerpt of what she said via The Punch about her carrier
I’ve been in the entertainment industry for over 10 years. I started recording songs in the UK and the first song I ever produced was titled Tell Me. It was produced by someone named Olly Jay. I continued doing my thing in the UK until I decided to move back to Nigeria about five years ago. I had been releasing songs and performing at shows in the UK before then. When I got to Nigeria, I first contested in the Glo X-Factor competition. I also auditioned for the Project Fame, but things just weren’t working. The industry can be very tough. I auditioned for Big Brother Africa three years ago. I made it to the finals but I didn’t make it through. I contested two years ago as well but I didn’t make it through the final round. I felt really terrible. I knew I had a purpose and I wanted to be famous, so, I continued pursuing my dream. I then applied for Big Brother Naija last year and I eventually made it through. After I left the ‘house,’ I didn’t want to go into music immediately. I decided to explore other areas such as the media, and securing endorsement deals. I will also be starting my own TV show very soon.
Shortly before her stint in Big Brother Naija, she released a song titled Desire. It was done in house music style because that was what she grew up listening to in the UK. It was with a blend of the Igbo language, which is her heritage. In all her songs, she always tries to combine her British and Nigerian identities. You can basically define her music as Afrohouse/Igbohouse. Uriel Oputa hasn’t paid attention to her music career for a while because she has chosen to try out other areas.
Uriel Ngozi Oputa is possibly single and has yet to be previously engaged. As of January 2023, she is not dating anyone.
