KAMPALA – With just a month away for the MTV Africa Music awards to happen live in Kampala, preparations on the ground among the nominated artists are in high gear.
Recently, there were activations involving Sheebah Karungi and Master KG, Yemi Alade and Bebe Cool, and Spice Diana & Sauti Sol.
The fruits from these activations are starting to show as singer Spice Diana has recorded a song with Kenyan superstars Sauti Sol.
Sources have revealed that Spice Diana recorded a song with Sauti Sol recently while they were in Kampala as part of the Road to MAMA campaign. Award-winning producer and singer Daddy Andre is said to be the producer of this new track.
The two brands (Spice and Sauti Sol) are said to have found great musical chemistry inspired by Ugandan music culture hence setting up a makeshift studio to work on a music project together.
As part of their Road To MAMA experience in Kampala, Spice Diana also took Sauti Sol on a scenic tour to the Nakulabye neighborhood, to show them where she grew up, the hardships she overcame, and the inspiration that came from her early years in the city, concluding with delicious local cuisine, a “Spice Diana” Rolex in Jinja for lunch.
The “Road to MAMA” experience will air as a three-part show, leading up to the MAMA Kampala 2021 main show, showcasing Uganda’s beauty and diversity.
The MTV Africa Music Awards Kampala edition is aimed at inspiring musical collaborations and uniting artists from across the continent.
In the awards that will be hosted virtually on 20 February 2021, Spice Diana is nominated for the MTV Africa Music Awards in the Best Ugandan Act category alongside other Ugandan artistes including Sheebah, Bebe Cool, John Blaq, Vinka, and Daddy Andre.
