Ogechi Nnedinma Ofodu, better known simply as Ogechi, is a poet, recording artist, dancer, and novelist located in Atlanta and Kansas City respectively.
Ogechi, a creative who works in a number of different disciplines, made her spoken word debut in 2015 at the age of seventeen with the group KC Poet Tree, which went on to rank in the top 25 in the world for youth poetry in 2016 at the Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam.
Ogechi had achieved a lot by the year 2017, including being elected Atlanta’s Youth Poet Laureate 2017/18, placing third in the world for youth poetry with Atlanta Word Works, and self-publishing her first chapbook titled “Lost Negro Records: A Colored History Chapbook“.
You can almost never tell when Ogechi is going from her speaking voice to a poetry cadence, rapping tone, or singing voice because she has a beautiful twang in her voice that is pleasing to the ear. Because of its diversity, the performance succeeds in keeping the audience wanting more.
Ogechi has the songs of Frank Ocean, the flows of Kendrick Lamar, the poetry that Beyoncé attempted to achieve with Lemonade, and the soulful delivery of Erykah Badu.
