Chinasa Gift Nwokocha, also known by her stage name CeCe, is an executive producer/songwriter that was born in Aba, Nigeria, raised in NYC, but has spent significant time in London and is strongly influence by the European culture. Cece has a Finance background that she obtains from Villanova University where she graduated with honors. Her degree was completed to satisfy her parents, but her passion has always been rooted in music, fashion, and entrepreneurship. She used to make music and write songs and poetry as a young girl and grew an impeccable ear for music.
She first became known under her clothing company, Ataria NYC, for her Afrobeat concert incorporated fashion shows where she brought out global afrobeat stars like Mr. Eazi and Mayorkun for their first shows ever in NYC and her global fashion show tours in various universities around the world. Her involvement in music and working with talent began through her fashion shows and led to her officially expanding her company, Ataria NYC, now known as Ataria INC. into full-service clothing, talent management, music, and event production company in 2018. Now she is working on her first catalog album as an executive producer/songwriter and artist. Her album is a collection of records she developed the creative vision for, funded, and brought the talent together to create. She also has a song she spits a few bars on the project as well as producer and songwriting credits. She is known as the glue and her upcoming project is a testament to that because she has managed to bring together global stars on the same record and project as some of the most talented upcoming artists around the world; an opportunity no other producer has ever provided to upcoming talents. She has weathered so many obstacles as a young female entering into the industry and has invested every paycheck she has ever earned since the age of 18 into her dreams. She is very liked by her peers and an inspiration to many and is seen as the next Diddy or Dj Khaled. Her talent as a music executive, talent manager, and producer is one that has not been seen yet in the industry. The most unique thing about her is her ability to create, see, and nurture untapped talent, and understand the kind of records the industry needs.
