Veteran songstress, Stella Monye was poisoned recently. Our gist merchants informed us that this energetic talent suffered food poison in Asaba Delta State. Where she had gone to perform at a concert tagged 'Forever Stella'. After her performance, the Samba Queen we learnt went in search of her favorite meal Amala and Ewedu inside town. And after the meal, she rushed out to her Hotel Room and few minutes later, she started throwing up. She was later rushed to a private hospital where she easy diagnosed for food poisoning. Our source further said “if not that she was rushed to the hospital, it would have been a different story. After she was diagnosed for food poison in Asaba, she was later flown to Lagos where her personal doctor attended to her.”

Speaking after she was discharged from the hospital, Her Excellency, as Stella is called by colleagues, said: “see how my love for 'amala' almost killed me. Well, I thank God for everything. I believe it is one of those things. I thank God again.”

She further narrated her experience: “when I was tired of oyinbo (white man's) food in the hotel I decided to take a walk and eat local food only to end up in the hospital. I thank God for being alive and I have learnt my lesson. As you can see I have since returned to work.”
