Or so they say. This weekend, Dazed flew out to Lagos, Nigeria for the third annual MTV Africa Music.
Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
Dearest friends and music lovers, welcome back and it's great to be back in Oz. We had the best time in both Ireland and Lorient with audiences as wild and wonderful as back home, and we wish to thank everyone who helped make our European adventure possible. We will post videos very soon and next step recording, yes you got it!!!
