African Music by Azawi is the Album of the year!
Named African Music, the rising singer’s debut album has 16-tracks including four collabos with award-winning Eddy Kenzo, dancehall star Apass, Fik Fameica, and one of Swangz Avenue’s bosses, Benon Mugumbya.
With Julius Kyazze as the executive producer, the album is very rich with class and quality. It also comes as the much-anticipated answer to the Nigerian afrobeat wave that is evidently dominating Uganda because of the quality that comes with it. With this album, we can confidently say ‘African Music’ is ready to compete on the continental stage.
The album’s collaborators, producers, and artiste are top-notch ‘creme de la creme’ and that is why we get a balanced diet of afro beats, Amapiano, hip hop, a soul among others that will define the direction of Ugandan music and boosts of a lineup of producers like Lizer Classic, Diamond’s producer, Benon Mugumbya, Bomba, Kuseim, Michael Fingaz Mugisha, Nessim, C Mart Keys among others African Music is undoubtedly the album of the year.
Basically, the African Music album sends out a message to music lovers globally that African music is not only defined by West Africa’s dominating Afrobeat sounds or South Africa’s rising Amapiano sound.
On Friday 8th October, 2021, ahead of the album release, the singer invited journalists, music critics, and a few other stakeholders in the industry to listen to it first.
When asked what she thinks of the album, the singer could not hide her excitement over it. “I am so excited for my first album which has taken me one year and 8 months to compile. I am a pan African and I love things that are African because they sell us a lot. This album is definitely influenced by African rhymes with a fusion of so many things but this is it.” She said.
Gwe Just Zzinnnnnnnaaaaaaa!!!
