Patti Boulaye OBE
Patti recently published her remarkable and moving autobiography ‘The Faith of A Child’ which charts her riveting life story through wealth, poverty and civil war, to show-business stardom and success in Britain and her birth country Nigeria. 2018 marked the 47th Anniversary of Patti’s West End debut in the musical 'Hair'. The show changed the course of Patti’s life, when at the age of 17 she joined the cast after arriving in London from Nigeria in the early 70’s.
Patti, who came to prominence as a singer winning the British ITV talent show New Faces where she made history by becoming the only contestant ever to receive the maximum 120 points, was awarded an OBE for her charity work in the UK and Sub- Saharan Africa in 2016.
