During a recent interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV, Stella revealed some details concerning the reason her family decided to change their surname from ‘Ojukwu’ to ‘Damasus’.

Stella said, “Many people were used to calling me Damascus, and I had to address it. Damasus is a Greek name given to my grandfather.

My original last name was Ojukwu, but it changed during the civil war. My people got attacked in Asaba because some people thought we were related to a popular Nigerian General at the time.

The name got changed to Damasus before I was born. That was the explanation I got. I cannot do anything about it.”
