We are so excited and encouraged that the Nine Beats Collective movement and message continue to reach out across the World.
The latest news is the launch of the “KOSI” project which is launching this September in East Africa. The project, led by Nine Beats Collective member Ambassada, features some of the biggest artists from Uganda and Kenya. KOSI is aimed at empowering as well as motivating kids and teens in East Africa and Africa at large.
Ambassada and his friends have re-visited and recorded a new version and interpretation of Ambassada’s song ‘Kosi’, the original version of which features on the Nine Beat Collective ‘Nine Beats to the Bar’ album which we released.
One of the other artists featured on the new recording is also one of Kenya’s fastest rising stars Jabiddi. His journey is an inspiring story, from starting out living in one of Africa’s biggest slums called Kibera in Nairobi to a national music and dance star.
In a competitive musical market like Uganda, breaking through as a female artist is one of the biggest milestones Nina Roz has managed as she has emerged as a singer and model and is now one of the top five female artists in Uganda. Nina brings a whole different vocal tonation plus an artistic approach like no other onto the KOSI project which is why we are so honoured to have her be part of the project. We know she will help inspire a whole new generation of female teens who have been thinking about giving up on their musical abilities.
We hope to share more news, photos etc as we receive them from Ambassada and/or the Nine Beats office. In the meantime keep it ‘Mseto’ as Ambassada and the team prepare to drop the KOSI project this month.
