The year 2020 has been tumultuous, with COVID-19 grounding the world economy to a halt, forcing everyone indoors, taking a huge toll on the live music industry and having us in a position to be thankful of the improving situations we experience currently.
emPawa Africa remains consistent with its vision of nurturing African talents into global superstars as evident in our investments in household names like Joeboy, J.Derobie, WhoisAkin, Donel, Tega Starr and C Natty. Not resting on our oars, we have extended our bets to the Arewa Music genre where we actively support soon-to-be household names like Namenj and DJ AB. In addition, Macjreyz, Grace Idowu, Freshprince, James Garlimah, Xeniah Manasseh, GoodGirl LA and Solana from the emPawa30 project have released amazing projects this year.
From hitting number one on the iTunes Chart in the USA and Billboard World Digital Sales Chart with 'Oh My Gawd', Mr Eazi caps the year with a Grammy to his belt at the Latin Grammy 2020, taking home the Best Urban Music Album for Colores with J Balvin.
With a promising outlook, we hope for a great 2021 for the economy, for live music / performances and for the music industry at large and we wish you compliments of the festive season.
