UGANDA: A Pass, Grenade and Fik Fameica feature on BBC Radio 1Xtra with DJ Edu.
6 December 2019
Ugandan musicians, A Pass, Fik Fameica and Grenade are currently in London making money moves.
The artists who traveled last week for a show are fishing for publicity for their music in the diaspora and in doing so, they visited BBC Radio 1Xtra on Sunday and had a chat with DJ Edu alias Afro Boss.
In the three-hour conversation, the stars were able to talk about their music, the latest projects, the importance of collaborations across Africa and they both drop a freestyle over Stylo G's 'Dumpling'!
“Yesterday was a good vibe @bbc1xtra with my Sebo @iamdjedu. It's always a pleasure to be in the same room with people who push our culture to the world stage.” A Pass expressed his gratitude.
Other Ugandan artistes that have featured on the show before include Eddy Kenzo and Sheebah who visited the studios a couple of weeks back.
