Swangz Avenue singer is enjoying the limelight after her new album ‘African Music’ making it to Uganda Apple Music.
Azawi’s ‘African Music’ album, which she released late last year, ranks No.4 on Uganda Apple Music top albums currently, which is led by Diamond Platnumz with his ‘First of All’ album.
‘African Music’ is also streaming on all major digital music platforms and it is nothing short of incredible.
However, before the album was released, Azawi’s record label Swangz Avenue, in conjunction with Guinness, held listening sessions for business and industry associates, select fans plus the media.
‘African Music’ is an epic compilation of great songs like ‘My Year’ and ‘Slow Dancing’, two hit singles that were released prior to the 16-track album being released.
Azawi is an influencer for Guinness’ Pan African ‘Black Shines Brightest’ campaign hence the brand being behind the listening parties.
“Azawi is a talented young woman who oozes creativity, optimism and ambition, demonstrating how one can shine brightest in the music industry. We are proudly associated and congratulate her on this milestone,” said Guinness Uganda Brand Manager Elizabeth Mutamuliza while at the listening session.
The second listening session was held at the Swangz Avenue offices in Industrial Area and music critics who attended referred to the album as a musical journey well equipped with soul and emotion, albeit with an African touch.
The album features A-Pass, Eddy Kenzo, Benon Mugumbya and Fik Fameica with production credits from Uganda’s top producers as well as Wasafi Records producer Lizer Classic, giving it a diversity of sound.
Azawi has writing or co-writing credits on all the songs on the album which were contributed by backup singer and instrumentalist Daphne Kayondo Najjuko aka Daphne K.
Music lovers and critics alike will find a lot of vibrancy on the new album since it cuts across different genres like the cultural Ugandan sounds, Reggae, Afro-beat and a dash of Amapiano.
