Gloria Ukata (St. Riya) was born on February, 1992. She had her primary school education In Togo; an American school called “International School Of Lome”.
She later continued her Junior High School In Ghana and her secondary education was well known as Tema Secondary School (TEMASCO). She lived In Togo for fifteen years whilst in the boarding house form JSS 2 to 3 before the whole family finally moved to Nigeria and I had to continue here in Ghana till she finally completed a month ago.
St. Riya is crazy, outgoing, fun to be with, talkative and funny girl as people say. She could be very quiet sometimes and Have An annoying mood swing, She always respect people around her and try to put on her best behavior anywhere she goes, and someway somehow it seems to work. Moreover, she enjoys singing, acting swimming, playing basketball and performing on stages with large crowd.
Nevertheless, St. Riya started composing music at the age of 15.
Also she say’s I'm endowed with everything basically centered on entertainment and she just don’t do It for fun, she does it because she has a strong passion for each and everyone of them. In her my childhood days she realized she loved to copy raps of Lil Romeo and rap along, Then later lost interest In rap after sometime.
She bet Nicki Minaj has made that love of rap come back due to her crazy style which she tends to love. Not until she noticed she also started writing her own lines and there! Now she does rap.
She says, it wasn’t easy but after some competition she started developing interest in her music and actually started with mixtapes. She normally sneaked out of the school to go to the studio, come back late, And she almost lost my privilege as a boarder due to sneaking out of school day in and out but it was all good.
Presently she has been nominated for Best Female Rapper for high school honors and Hope she wins the award. Not last but the least she been struggling ever since then to develop this career which has not been all that easy, But she believe things would get better some way some how. Even If It’s not filled with talents, she believes the zeal alone will take her to heights.
