Superstar Master KG, the man behind the global hit “Jerusalema” and the globally renowned Ghetto Kids recently met up in Jinja, Uganda. The meeting was facilitated by Uganda’s songstress Sheebah who, having also started her career as a dancer, was the perfect person to introduce the Ghetto Kids to Master KG and his dance crew from South Africa.
They all discussed the impact of African Dance on the globe and how viral videos literally changed their lives. They taught each other dance moves and had a good time together. This meet up was a great example of the MAMA bringing international artists together to exchange ideas, cultures and skills.
The MAMA has always fostered a culture of exchange, upliftment and learning across Africa and the globe. As part of the MTV Africa Music Awards Kampala 2021production roll-out aspiring professionals from Uganda will also benefit from internships and job shadowing opportunities as well a series of skills exchange workshops set to take place in 2021.
