Popular Zzigima singer, Bright Chimezie (a.k.a Okoro Junior) is as old as his fatherland, Nigeria. He was born on October 1, 1960 at a time the country severed its colonial cord from Britain.
So the ‘child’ of independence, as he is fondly called by close friends has a reason for being independent minded. Symbolically, Chimezie is so much in love with his tradition that while some of his colleagues depend on foreign products for a living, he prefers to sing, work and dress as a true African.
An ardent lover and promoter of his culture, Chimezie has impacted positively on his fans and has equally been well patronised by indivduals and corporate bodies. For instance, Chimezie featured prominently in all the Golden Tones Concerts sponsored by Benson and Hedges in the late 1990s. He also performed alongside such artistes as Daniel Wilson, Orits Wiliki and Ras Kimono in a major promotional concert that toured United Kingdom.
