Personal Life

Westgate Shopping Mall Photoshoot

Dyonne Tanaka is the first born child, and her parents divorced during her adolescent years. Being the first born she had to grow up fast and help to raise her siblings whilst attending high school at the same time. She began trading in Designer Fashion and Accessories, and doing corporate modelling and PR work. Whilst attending a Corporate Photo shoot in Glendale she was offered a lift by urban grooves (Afro beats) music artist Desmond Chideme. She took this as an opportunity to receive advise on how to venture into the music industry. Little did she know that she would become Stunner’s trusted confidante in his personal relationship issues. After his rocky toxic relationship and global humiliation in the African Diaspora, Stunner left Olinda Chapel. During this trying time Dyonne was reluctant to leave the country as family arrangements had been made, and stuck by Stunner’s side. They currently have a baby girl Kyra Owami Chideme together. Dyonne Tanaka is currently taking a career break as she raises her daughter.
