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.
Hello all, wishing you are all warm and well, roll on the Springtime! We are so excited about the fantastic series of concerts coming up, in and around Victoria, and our 2nd South Australian tour. Also of course, we are midst recording our fourth album and it's sounding sweet ... stay tuned :- )
