Generally Ugochi’s style of spoken word has been fused with her unique singing ability in order to generate a more powerful word sound attraction. A child of Nigeria, West Africa, Ugochi has grown into a full-fledged singer and songwriter comfortable enough with her talent for sound and the absence of it. A former rapper, turned poet, gone singer, Ugochi has become extremely versatile and creative with the range of music she is able to perform.
Ugochi’s music has allowed her to travel to many countries in Europe, including performing her extremely individualized form of sound power in Paris, Nigeria, Amsterdam, London, Leeds, Brasil, Italy and Jamaica. She has been featured on WTTW’s Wild Chicago and Artbeat Chicago, WXRT, WGN Morning Show, as well as performed with acclaimed artists such as Common, Malik Yusef, J. Ivy, Eric Benet, Michael McDermott, Edwin McCain, Maxi Priest, Umphrey’s McGee, and most recently John Legend and Femi Kuti. She was selected as a finalist in the HBO/Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam 2001 Competition. She also performed in Dance Africa Chicago 2001 where she received rave reviews by the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times. In 2003, legendary Chicago diva Chaka Khan saluted the emerging artist as “someone who will have a long life in the music business,” when she was selected as a semi-finalist on Star Search. Ugochi also wrote the only original song for the critically acclaimed “Red Hot and Riot Compilation,” in honor of the late Fela Ransome Kuti and global AIDS awareness. The song, So Be It, was performed by R&B star Kelis.
Thanks to the underground success of her debut album project appropriately titled “African Buttafly,” Ugochi is currently working on her sophomore album project that is sure to be another word, sound phenomenon. Illinois Entertainer Magazine hails her as an urban singing phenomenon, a rising star with reach far beyond her city block. Chicago’s Power 92.3 radio personality, Cortney “Babygirl” Hicks, acknowledges her as the next independent artist to watch as she soars to her rightful place in music history. In 2006 Ugochi traveled to Brasil, Italy, London and Jamaica spreading her gospel of love and life through her music ministry. She continues to share her gift of song internationally. Ugochi’s hope is that she will see more of the planet through her music, eventually bridging the gap while taking in the sights and sounds of the world.
