Evolving Into The Mainstream
Ugoccie releases 'Man on Fire', a song off her EP, 'A Piece of Me'. Ugoccie’s ‘Man on Fire’ comes as something fresh and refreshing – completely out of the box. Most striking is the realisation that the song kicks off with the narration of a story – storytelling being a vital quality of a traditional entertainer. This attribute of the song makes listening to ‘Man on Fire’ a serious business.
Vibrant and propulsive
