Jodie - Kuchi Kuchi


Nigerian Singer, J'odie, releases her first video, for the baby-inspired Zouk song which was released at the tail end of 2010. The song exudes innocence and is extremely melodic in its delivery and her style can be described in three words; Soulful, Artsy... Simply African.


Born Joy Odiete Eseoghene to an Esan mom and an Urhobo father, who is a Pastor as well, Jodie grew up in Lagos - in a very religious environment and as a child sang in a choir; in high school, she led the school choir and at every point in her life, has been a member of a choir or singing group.

After High school, Jodie went on to study Mass communication at the
University of Lagos, graduating in 2006, and the following year a new chapter opened in her life as she auditioned for the Idols West Africa talent show. Though not emerging Winner, petit-statured Jodie was a favorite as she thrilled viewers and Panelists with her vocal richness.
The Church may have been her take-off point, but being in a competition ho
ned her skills and increased her musical repertoire as she delved into other forms of music apart from gospel.

After Idols, Jodie completed her national orientation program [NYSC], and has since been growing, learning and defining herself. That growth and definition has birthed the single Kuchi kuchi; the soothing rhythmic track which since its release late last year is enjoying massive rotation on radio. Jodie has worked with talented acts like Timi Dakolo and Ace Producers Cobhams and TY Mix, and has also performed at various events including the House on the Rock Carol Service 2010, This Present House (The Dome, Lekki), and La Vita Nuova 2010

With her inspiration borne mostly out of personal experiences and the bible, Jodie comes out with a message of love, peace, and hope; all universal messages but with a personal spin that we can all relate with.


Jodie - Kuchi Kuchi (lyrics)

When I wake up, wake up in the morning
I see your lovely face
Your cheeks like butter, honey
From a tea cup
You take my breath away
Your pretty, little fingers, so tender
Like petals from the morning bloom
Your laughter, a joy to remember
Heaven has blessed me with you
The very day you came to me
My whole life became brand new eh eh
Because of you eh eh eh

Oh baby, oh baby, I see me in your eyes

Oh baby, oh baby,
I see love in your smile
You tell me kuchi kuchi ahhh
I understand

You tell me kuchi kuchi ahhh

Oh baby, oh baby

Kuchi kuchi ahhh

Oh baby, oh baby

Kuchi kuchi ahhh

Oh baby, my baby

Kuchi kuchi ahhh

Oh baby, pretty baby

Kuchi kuchi ahhh


In the middle of the night
I wake up
When I hear your cry
It seems something binds us together
Supernatural
I can hardly live a moment without you eh eh
Because of you eh eh eh

Oh baby, oh baby,

I see me in your eyes

Oh baby, oh baby,

I see love in your smile

You tell me kuchi kuchi ahhh

I understand

You tell me kuchi kuchi ahhh

Oh baby, oh baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh baby, oh baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh baby, my baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh, my baby, pretty baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh


You make me cry
Laughter is not enough
I've seen true beauty
Because I see you

Oh baby, oh baby

Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh baby, oh baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh baby, my baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
Oh, my baby, pretty baby
Kuchi kuchi ahhh
