The two New Bell Music Frontline artists Jovi a.k.a Le Montres and Reniss will be making their way to Uganda coming this September 2017 to headline the 3 days Nyege Nyege concert with other top artists across the continent.
This is probably Jovi and first ever trip to Uganda. Lately, Uganda has become the spotlight for world celebrities to go shoot videos with beautiful locations. Probably the site would attract him to shoot 50/50, one of his underrated songs in the 16Wives album featuring Reniss.
Nyege Nyege is back in 2016 with an even more massive line-up. North, West, South and East African are all sending their underground music legends to come and represent the best of what contemporary African music has to offer: kuduros, kwaito, Afro house, hiplife, Tuareg rock, cosmic synths from Niger, Arab tech, Morrocan bass, zouk bass, soukous, balani, funana, and swhaili trap and Tigrinian blues to name some of the genres that will be represented by the founders and pioneers of each respective style.
Nyege Nyege takes it’s inspiration from the legendary World Festival of the Black Arts’ that took place in Dakar Senegal in 1966. An extended invitation from Uganda to the world. Nyege Nyege will also showcase the connections between Africa and the rest of the world Afro Diaspora with Cumbia from South America, vodou jazz from Haiti and underground hip hop from America. Complementing the line-up will some of the hottest producers and DJ’s from Europe whose work is in conversation with African sounds.
