    International African Buttafly Ugochi Nwaogwugwu Live

    in Social Networking

    A child of Nigeria, West Africa, Ugochi has grown into a full-fledged poet, singer and songwriter comfortable enough with her talent for sound and the absence of it. Ugochi’s choreo-poetic style of spoken word has been fused with her unique singing ability in order to generate a more powerful word sound attraction. She has written poems that have been honored in an international anthology titled, “A Storm Between Two Fingers,” and by internationally renowned organizations like Apples and Snakes in the UK. Chicago Music Awards classified her as "Best African Entertainer 2005." Her musical reverberation, part Afrobeat and part Chi-town soul has been cleverly coined Afro-Soul. Ugochi has let her voice be heard in countries such as Europe, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Leeds, Italy as well as Nigeria, Brasil, and Jamaica. Ugochi and the Afro Soul Ensemble were featured on the Africa Channel, Soundtracks at Red Kiva.  Call in on 347-215-8985 at 10:30 pm eastern time, 9:30 pm central standard time, 8:30 pm mountain time and 7:30 pm pacific time Wednesday, April 3, 2013.
