To begin: hello. I hope this finds you weathering life's road with a healthy and vigorous spirit. If we haven't met, a few words of introduction. My name is Ikechukwu Ufomadu. Or, if you like - Ike. I'm an entertainer, and this is my home on the internet. Glad to have you here.

I hope you'll stay awhile.  You can read more about me, find out when I'm performing next, see photo and video of past endeavors and probably a thing or two more. In any event, do enjoy yourself.
