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.
Just the other day we were sitting at the studio, listening to some of our demos and musical experiments and some vinyls we feel good with. When listening to this piece, we felt that there was some living-in-the-moment going on in there that we'd like to share. To us it is extremely important that such moments can emerge and can be felt. It's music, ya'll.
