IT Ecosystem Concert: Emelonye, Flavour, Patoranking to perform

UK-based Afrosoul sensation, Uchechi Emelonye is scheduled to perform at the annual IT ecosystem concert, ‘Celebrating You’, usually hosted by TD Africa.

22-year-old Emelonye, who disclosed this in a statement in Lagos on Tuesday, said this was a development that would herald her first major performance in Nigeria since her professional music career started three years ago.

She said this would take place at Konga Place, Lekki Lagos on Sunday, Dec. 3, 2023.

The award-winning multi-instrumentalist, who is fondly called “Afrosoul Princess”, said she was full of enthusiasm about this opportunity to connect with her growing fan base, especially in Nigeria.

She vowed to use the opportunity to entrench more to her roots.

“It will be so beautiful to physically connect with my fans in Nigeria.

“Since my music expedition, my Nigerian fans have been very supportive and I see this performance as a good opportunity to connect more with them.

“I am excited this is happening. I am eagerly looking forward to that evening,” she said.

With songs such as ‘Little Black Bird’, ‘Sunrise to Sundown’ and ‘Underwater’, which won the BBC Music Introducing ‘Record of the Year 2022’ in Lancashire, England, Emelonye unveiled, ‘Baby You’ in August 2023, after capping her efforts with a Law degree from Lancaster University, in the UK.

Lauded for her dexterity in emotionalising her themes with lyrics and rhythm, Uchechi, an offshoot of the Emelonye clan of artists in Imo State, has had a steady rise in her music career since the debut of her first single in 2020.
