“I love to sing music that reflects the passion in my life. I sing about the real challenges, hopes,and victories of everyday life that people can relate to first hand, and I will always connect with your heart and leave you with something to inspire you to your next level," recent Baylor University graduate Ufuoma says of herself.

The name 'Ufuoma' stands for 'peace' but when shes on the mic, it’s a battle field out there! She delivers a message of peace and love through passionate, strong,and powerful vocals in a unique blend of pop, a fusion of soul and RnB, soft rock, and a genre she calls afro calypso. Very dexterous and adventurous on the mic, this diva is set to take the music industry by storm.

"Sometimes, I may get a story in my heart and relay it to other song writers to craft it out, at other times, I get both the story and the melody as well. I am very versatile in my style of music, I love soul that is not too “souly”,and a tinge of RnB any day.I will sleep, wake up to, and eat pop music till it literally “pops!” out of my ears. I absolutely love the sound and the rhythms of Africa! I proudly rep Africa, my motherland!!" she continues.

Here is a taste of what is to come with the swingy African rhythm titled “Smile (e go better)” written by Chuka "Dikah" Ufondu and produced by D- Tunes.

Five powerful African women

Forbes has just released the official list of the world's 100 most powerful women of 2013. I am not sure which criteria Forbes experts used. Based on the list, they have probably included criteria such financial or diplomatic influence. However, I was disappointed to notice the insignificant representation of African women on the list. This may be partly explained by the background of those in charge of the selection.
