Maizie Williams

Maizie Williams was known as the first member of Boney M collective and the person who linked the entire collective into a historical band that is popular since nowadays. Although many considered her to be the quiet and humble personality, this young lady was nicknamed “Spitz” by her colleagues because of her sharp tongue that kept the entire Boney M in line and offered the necessarily discipline and aspirations in order to achieve overwhelming success.

Maizie Ursulla Williams was born on March 25, 1951 on a small Caribbean island named Montserrat. In 1963 she moved to England with her family members. Williams will say that it was a great decision because she liked England and her dad became a chocolate factory director. Maizie always felt something special for show business and always felt that entertaining is her vocation, acknowledging the natural beauty she was granted with. During her schooling years she attended modeling in order to help her family financially, but it wasn’t anything big until a contest that was held in Brighton and Maizie earned the title “Miss Black and Beautiful”. Since then she started to travel across European countries with different travel agencies.

One day during a meal at a restaurant in Hannover Maizie Williams and her friend model Sheila Bonnick got an offer from an agent named Katja Wolf to perform under the pseudonym Boney M and mime some songs that were previously recorded by the producer Frank Farian. Bonnick saw no future in this project and left it shortly after. Mazie helped Farian to find new members and form the band he was dreaming of. Even though she hadn’t much vocal parts, and demonstrated her singing as a back vocalist in such hits like “Rasputin”, “Daddy Cool” and ‘Ma Baker” Maizie Williams was an original member that demonstrated a high professionalism and was respected for her quiet determination. She had all the needed characteristics in order to become a highly recognized person of entertaining industry and it is no wonder that her dream came true so yearly. In an interview Maizie Williams will admit that she never saw herself as a housewife and family woman, her entire life was dedicated to the stage and entertaining millions of fans all over the globe.

In present days Maizie Williams is touring with her own assembly of Boney M that is consisted of her close friends. She is writing books and articles about her life, health and beauty. She never claimed to be a great singer, but she is a fantastic entertainer and personality undoubtedly.
