About Orie Basi

She is beautiful, and that simply describes this young artiste who is poised to storm Nigeria music scene with her single entitled ‘Uchenna’.
“Uchenna (Ije Love) was inspired by true love, the tall, fair-complexion singer and song writer, who hails from Abia State said with a thin smile playing on her lips, adding, “Uchenna in Igbo land means my father’s mind or wish, and as a girl, my dad always wished for a good man for me. I wasn’t really talking about a particular man in the song though, I was talking about all the African good men who love and respect their women.”
Born Praise Chinyere Okoh Obasi, the singer started music at a very young age. She took her singing talent to another level when she joined her high school music group. She also became a member of the Assemblies of God Church choir, Lome, Togo.
Orie Basi has worked with producers like Omar B, Phat E, Ekelly, Papa K, Doc Def, among many others and what makes her stand out according to her, “Is my ability to sing in all the four major languages I speak and I always incorporate African culture into my music”. Nigerians should be on the look-out; it’s going to be a surprise and I can’t wait.
