A banker’s wife and respectable mum-of-four will be swapping her glass of wine for a Gin’n’Juice when she joins controversial gangster rapper Snoop Dogg on tour.

Part-time singer Stacey Jackson, 42, normally spends her spare time ferrying her kids to school, learning pilates or attending Parent Teacher Association meetings.

But she is now teaming up with Snoop Dogg, who was famously banned from entering the UK, after the duo collaborated on a new single.

Stacey, who lives in Chelsea, west London, with equity banker husband Henry Jackson, 46, is now balancing being a full-time mum by day and singer by night.

She said: “I got married young and had my children but I could see my own life slipping away if I did not take a chance on music.

“I am still a committed mum – I go to the football games, cook the tea and take a strong interest in their schools.

“But I am a mum by day and rocker by night. There are some women who work so hard on their careers they miss out on having a family – I did it the right way round.

“When I first met Snoop he was really nice and we just talked about normal things like parenting. When I played him the track he said it could be huge.

“I know rap music has a bad reputation with some parents, but Snoop was a great guy. I am now “Stacey ‘Bowow’ Jackson” and I have become part of a dog pound.

“My son sometimes comments on my clothes, so I try to not embarrass him. But the children understand it is a costume.”

Stacey lives with her husband, their three teenage sons Reid, 15, Tyler, 12, Liam, 8, and three-year-old daughter Caylie.

She usually spends her evenings making tea for her children, reading bad-time stories or going to the gym.

The singer has been trying to break into the music industry since her teens and had to fund her debut motown charity album “Upside Down”, released in 2009.

But the Guns’N’Roses fan switched to club music and released “I Hear a Symphony” last year which reached 17 in the UK dance chart, but left her still relatively unknown.

However, while seeking a rapper for her new single Stacey’s agent contacted Snoop Dogg, real name Calvin Broadus, 39, and he agreed to collaborate with her.

She travelled to New York to record with the gangster rapper and their new single “Live it up” is due to be released this summer.

Stacey will be touring UK clubs from the end of May and joining Snoop Dogg in Ibiza to perform in international club venues with the song.

She said: “I do not want to turn 60 having not tried a music career and think I have wasted my talent. I have been working towards this moment for years

“I’m exhausted when I get home after running two lives because there is no such thing as an over-night success. But it is all worth it now.

“I would love to be an inspiration to other mums and show them it is never too late to follow your dream.

“I’m up against teenage stars but age does not hold me back because I have actually experienced the things I am singing about.”
