Artist Spotlight — Navio

Wednesday, April 12, 2023

Daniel Kigozi Jr, the artist better known as Navio is widely regarded as one of the most prolific East-African Artistes of all time. He is a talented musician who has transcended Genre, having been one of the pioneers of the Hip Hop scene in Uganda. 

Navio has spent nearly a decade in the industry and his growth to become a star has mirrored the growth of Hip Hop in Africa. The issues closest to him being Refugees, Poverty and the new threat to Uganda’s way of life—human trafficking.

Navio's newest album Vibes Out The East (VOTE) speaks highly to who he is at the core. In the first song of the album, "Hamadi (feat. Elly Wamala)", Navio, alongside the late great Elly Wamala, have come together to create music that identifies exactly what it means to be Ugandan. Unlike many watered down collaborations, this one makes no apologies—Elly tells a story of “Hamadi” and Navio tells us his own. Check out "Hamadi" below, and be sure follow Navio to hear and learn more!
