Lucy Iheonyechoro Ugorji, the first female artiste signed to Rudeboy Recordz, a highflying label owned by Paul Okoye, one half of the famous P-Square twin brothers, has released another single titled ‘Turn It Up’.
Lucy believes that being an artiste under Rudeboy Recordz is more than a dream come true, and is divine. Her native Igbo name, Iheonyechoro, means ‘what you want is what you get,’ and she is convinced that the power of the name is behind her current status.
Lucy can easily be described as a focused, ambitious and resilient lady, who has continued to break barriers, despite just being 21-years of age. Lucy was born and bred in Sapele, Delta State, Nigeria on 26 May, 1994, though her father is a native of Mbaise, Imo State, while her mother is from Ishan, Edo State. Her father, a retired Chartered Accountant, owned one of the biggest poultry farms in Sapele.
The last child from a family of six, Lucy was not over-pampered by her parents; instead, she was taught the rudiments of hard work and how to chase her beautiful dreams, little wonder she got an academic scholarship while in Primary four. Lucy, who is currently a final year Law student from the prestigious Coventry University in the United Kingdom, started her academic journey in Nigeria at the Future Generation Nursery and Primary School, Sapele.
At age 16, 17 and 18 respectively, Lucy participated at the prestigious X-Factor (UK) competition, but didn’t win on her three attempts. She was also part of a cultural dance troupe and church choir, and her school’s drama group.
