Ghanaian electro-soul singer Jojo Abot’s latest collaboration is with Kenyan DJ/Producer collective, East African Wave. Together, they flipped Missy Elliot’s “Work It” into “Mega Kpenu Nao“ (translated “Let It Shame You Not”). The video was shot entirely on an iPhone.
The song and collab marks the beginning of Afri-Na-Ladi, translated Back to the Basics, a multimedia workshop “featuring collaborations between a selection of Africa’s most innovative underground artists.” Making something out of nothing; in its essence teaching the joy of truly creating. The workshop takes place in Kenya for the next three months, between December 2015 and March 2016, and will feature collaborations with some of Africa’s most innovative underground artists.
