She is known as TaryWest in Nollywood; a writer, actor and producer. But only a few knew of her earlier artistic exploits in the entertainment world. Meet the multi talented entertainer as she gives an account of her journey:

“Hmm… Most aren’t aware of this aspect of my life. Started off as a Performing Artiste 40 Years Ago. As a Singer, Played in nightclubs and big events like Poatson Musical Jamboree and Klass Nightclub. Danced for Groups like Farofa Dance Group, Wazobia Dance Group, Ojomo Dancers and Troupe Africana of Nigeria.

Though celebrated, it only lasted 5 Years. Because as at 1989, the microphone was dropped for acting; I allowed them chase me off stage. A decision I regretted few years after. But I had lost the voice and looks that brought about the name, Nigerian Tina Turner; neither could I lift a leg not to mention dance.

Now, 35 Years After, I am Back, not just as an Artiste, but a Record Label Owner. Destiny is fulfilled.

It can only be GOD! It is also my Birthday; a double Celebration. Our GOD Is Forever Faithful”

Tary West is a sister to the late Nollywood pioneer actor, J. T. Tom West of blessed memory.

Her music can be accessed on Audiomack and all digital music streaming platforms.
