Kenya: Uganda's Navio to Host African DJ Awards

Award-winning hip hop artiste Navio has been confirmed as the main host for the first ever African Global DJ Awards. The awards will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, on May 4.

Organized by two of Nigeria's leading companies, Stronghold Entertainment and Stats Media, Navio will host alongside Channel O VJ Denrele at the star-studded event.

The African Global DJ Awards is the first major show to recognize the growing importance of Disc Jockeys to the vast African and Global music scene.

In recognizing DJs from across the continent in a number of different categories based on individual DJ's body of work and contribution in their countries, the event will showcase and promote the growth of the art form worldwide.

"I'm looking forward to representing Uganda and the spirit of music in general at the African Global DJ Awards. As a hip hop artiste, the importance of the art form of deejaying cannot be underestimated and I'm thankful to the show organisers, Stronghold Entertaiment and Stats Media, for putting this together," said Navio.
