“Onye Igbo Agonari Ndigbo” meaning an “Igbo person denying their Igbo identity” is Ugezu’s fifth album. His other albums include, “Amuputa Onye Igbo”, “Egwu Igbo Egwu Ego”, “Kpaputa Ego Ka Osie Remix” and “Guys in Holland.”
According to the Chairman
Planning Committee of the festival, Okechukwu P. Oranika, the theme of this great song rhymes with the theme of the festival, focusing on Igbo language and culture all the way.
“This is a great song folks, I can’t help nodding my head and tapping my feet listening to the great melody of this song which is rendered in Igbo language,”Oranika said.
Also, known as Mr. Surplus, Ugezu is one of the respected film directors with so many movies to his credit. Despite directing English movies, Ugezu did not forget where he comes from as he delved into new territory: Igbo language music.
Ugezu is an actor, screenwriter, film maker and Highlife singer who holds the traditional titles of Ayaka Enugwu-Ukwu and Okwulu Igbo Na Umunri. In a recent interview, Ugezu said, he’s using his songs to promote the Igbo language which is speedily going into extinction.”
