Multi-talented singer and songwriter Pricilla Zawedde aka Azawi is set to hold her maiden concert just two-and-a-half years after her breakthrough on the music scene.
It will be the first major concert by a solo Ugandan act following a two-year lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Azawi’s concert is supported by Guinness Uganda and will take place on Saturday, July 22, at the Lugogo Grounds.
Guinness’ interest in the concert does not come as a surprise as the star is linked to the brand as an influencer for the pan-African Blacks Shines Brightest Campaign.
She has collaborated with the brand on different projects, including the launch of her album, the release of her hit song Majje off her maiden album African Music, and recently the Guinness Bright House Experience, where she delivered a music masterclass.
Speaking about the brand’s interest in Azawi and the concert, Guinness Uganda brand manager Elizabeth Mutamuliza explained that collaborations with culture shapers and talented individuals making waves across Africa like Azawi is the whole gist of their Black Shines Brightest Campaign.
“As Guinness, our interest in this partnership with Azawi on the African Music Concert stems from our Black Shines Brightest
Campaign and mantra that speaks to collaborations with talented individuals that are out here shaping and reshaping culture with their creative works, which is something that Azawi has excelled in as she continues to break barriers in Uganda’s music industry and beyond,” Mutamuliza said.
Azawi has promised to take revellers through some of her biggest songs off her maiden album, African Music.
She will be accompanied by an incredible lineup of artistes, including singer Eddy Kenzo, dancehall star A Pass and hip hop star Fik Fameica.
