Fast rising singer, Ogochukwu Oye aka Ogoor, has revealed how she was rejected many times after auditioning at music reality shows in the country. This is coming as she made a debut on the music scene with a single, You Are Mine.
In a brief chat with some journalists during the week, Ogoor, who hails from Awka, Anambra State, narrated how she failed to secure a spot as one of the contestants in some music reality shows.
“It wasn’t an easy journey for me. You know, after school, I had attempted to kickstart my career through reality shows, but I was rejected a lot of times. I don’t think it was because I lacked anything, I want to believe it was simply because I just didn’t have what exactly they were looking for.
“I attempted almost all the reality shows but I just wasn’t lucky to make it through. Some people will kick off their career through that means and many of us will hit the limelight through working meticulously and righteously to put our music out there,” Ogoor stated.
On her kind of music, Ogoor explained that her sound can’t be pinned to one particular genre, as her soulful ballad appeals to the hearts of many.
When asked if she sings the usual R&B or gospel, Ogoor stressed that she sings about anything and everything, as she taps her inspiration from people around her, including her family, friends as well as her personal experiences.
“My kind of music can’t be boxed into one genre, because for me, I am a musician and music flows from my soul. I write and also see others write but I can tell you when I sing, it’s for a purpose, probably to share a particular experience or someone’s experience.
“I can do any genre, I can sing but my rhythm for now has seen me launch my career with a low tempo yet appealing and alluring to the ears. Music means so much to me and my passion for music has always been from my childhood days,” Ogoor said.
