Late legendary singer, Christy Essien-Igbokwe’s granddaughter, Christiana Igbokwe changes the norm with new single “Oge Mme Mme” celebrating the rich Igbo culture of homecoming. The single is an Afro pop ballad which captures the very essence of the young singer and a bit of a mirror image of her late grandmother.

The name “Christy Essien-Igbokwe” is synonymous with hit songs of the late 70s, 80s and 90s. Songs like Seun Rere, Change the System, Ife, Hear the Call, Tete Nu Nula and a host of (many) others underscore the late legend’s glorious career.

But now in the Gen Z era, the name *Christiana Igbokwe* is beginning to muster up some new chapters around the music industry and this time, a new set of new hits may be on the horizon.

Christiana Chizaramekpeleamaka Ijeoma Igbokwe, born in 2012, in Houston Texas, is set to drop her third EP (Motherland) with the release of her lead single from the project titled “Oge Mme Mme” (Celebration Time); drawing her fan-base from the old and the young and connecting them through the values and the beauty of being a true African. Young Christiana Igbokwe is set to change the norm by using her music to tell our intriguing African stories.

*Oge Mme Mme* is an African ballad that tells the story of a young girl born in the diaspora who returns to Nigeria to reconnect with her roots. Her homecoming draws a lot of nostalgic feelings.

“Our roots and our cultural diversity make us who we are. It makes us authentic, keeps us grounded and unique; so that as we interact with others and make international connections, we can build bridges of trust, respect, development and understanding across cultures,” says Christiana.

The song drops today November 9, 2022 on all digital platforms.
