Assorted is a dynamic duo from Enugu regarded as the entertainment capital of eastern Nigeria. Ugwuanyi Innocent Ikechukwu a.ka Pacy and Ogbonna Chukwuebuka Victor a.k.a Buvic, met in 2006 at a recording studio where they both recording as individual artistes. On their first meet, hanging out, singing together and realizing their similarity in vision decided to become a duo. They picked the name ‘Assorted’ which depicts the mix and versatility in their styles.
Their foundation is highlife with the duo fusing a blend of pop and urban elements. Their music has been met with applause as their first single ‘kporonge’ was a huge success in the East and received positive responses from feedback from other parts of Nigeria and Africa. The attention and success of their debut led to an interest by an indie label executive, shortly after signing the contract however it was terminated by the duo. A remix of the monster hit single ‘kporonge’ with Duncan Mighty and visuals shot by the profilic Clarence Peters was shot.
Shortly afterwards, Hillbank records – A South African label based in Capetown signed them.
They are currently working on their next EP which would feature productions from hit music makers Samklef for the track ‘effizy’ and Dekumzy (producer of hit tracks like ‘Me and you’ by Bracket, ‘Yori yori’ , ‘No time’ featuring PSquare) for the duo’s second song ‘Ayogo’.
Assorted has collaborated with Da L.E.S of the South African trio, Jozi, which would be their next single.
