ON THE SPORAH SHOW TONIGHT "I LEARNT TO BE HUMBLE FROM R. KELLY" THE GREATEST R&B ARTIST "NAVIO", EAST AFRICA'S BIGGEST HIP-HOP ARTIST.

This time I was able to catch up with Navio,  East Africa's biggest hip-hop artist and a multi award-winning artist both locally and internationally.

A 5-time Pearl of Africa (PAM) Award winner, in 2011 he was also Africa’s most nominated artist at the Channel O awards nominated for Best Male Artist, Best Hip Hop Artist and Best Video of the year for “Keep Moving”. In 2012, he was again nominated at the Channel O awards for Best East African artist for the hit single “One and Only”. His current hit single “Kata” has just been released to critical acclaim on MTV, Channel O and Trace.

You're one of the most successful celebrity in East Africa, tell us how did it start?

Navio began in the rap group Klear Kut which was nominated for two Kora Awards in 2002, and won a Pearl of Africa (PAM) award, Uganda’s leading award show, in 2004 for best Hip-Hop Group.

As a solo act he was the first artist to be nominated twice in the same category at the Kora awards in 2008, won Best Hip-Hop Artist at the PAM awards 2008 and 2010, Best Video at the PAM awards. In 2007 and 2010, nominated in Kenya for the Kisima Awards 2008 as Best Male Artist, Best Video and Best Hip Hop Artist.

In April 2012, he picked up the award for Best East African Artist at the African Entertainment Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Take us back, WHO IS NAVIO, if your to define yourself in 1 minute?

Daniel Kigozi aka ‘NAVIO’ is a young, dynamic and talented musician, who is among the most recognized Hip-hop artist’s in Africa. I am Ugandan from the Baganda tribe
NAVIO has gone from strength to strength, working his way up the entertainment ladder in Uganda to become the most recognized Hip-hop artist in the country.

When growing up, I listened so much to music. My brother had a huge collection of rap music from the likes of RUN’D MC, MC Hammer, Vanilla ice, Beast boys etc  and I would try to do what those guys did on the cassettes. I remember one day, when I was about 10 years, my mother had me rapping in the living room, and she came over and asked whether it was Vanilla Ice rapping. I told her that was me throwing the verses. She was so excited that she had to take me to Baava studio and that is how all this started.

Navio is Uganda’s ambassador to ONE8, the African supergroup featuringfellow artists Fally Ipupa from DRC, 2 Face from Nigeria, Alikiba from Tanzania, 4×4 from Ghana, Movizhalene from Gabon, Amani from Kenya, JK from Zambia and international megastar, R Kelly.

The group’s first single “Hands Across the World” was a No 1 single inseveral countries internationally as well as generating over a million hits onYou Tube.

Navio’s individual song off the ONE8 album “Feel Free” was a countrywide smash in Uganda peaking at No 1 on the popular Sanyu radiochart.
Navio’s sound and style is unique and strikes a balance between an African sound and a contemporary international flavour.


Lets Talk About Your Experience In One8 Project!
First thing i learnt is to be Humble! 
I mean when I got to the studio, I met a lot of professional people, producers who have worked with the likes of Mariah Carrey and I too, met a producer Easy Mob who worked with both Tupac and Notorious Big and he has produced my new song, stuttering.
And I did even go to the visual studio on the same building, this is a studio that has done work for movies like; Am legend by Will Smith and many more, so working with all those people, I felt like I was at the benchmark of the entertainment industry and it was a good learning experience.

Tell us about your new single "KATA" 

I take one by one KATA , KATA, SHAKE.! Love the song.

 “KATA” is all set to take African Music to the NEXT levels. The percussion and raw African sounds which include live drumming, sweeping dance craze, all come together with Navio’s Lyrics to provide East Africa with a new sound.
The song is about ‘Freedom’ and having a “blast” .
‘Kata’ has also inspired a new dance, invented by the dancers in his video. After a soft release of the song in Europe, the new dance is already spreading out there as well. The song has the potential to be an African cross-over hit.

Tell us,  what has been your greatest achievement  and biggest challage over the years?

The greatest achievement has been the birth of my son who is two years, and that changed my life. Knowing I have a copy of myself and maybe being nominated at the Kora award twice, was another firework in life.

And the biggest challange was finding my own identity, and making my own way, despite when the industry never believed in hip-hop and rap music, but I kept doing what I believed in, what I liked and today it’s paying off

Are you in a relashionship?

Am so single, searching in vain ha-ha! Yes am single and ready to mingle.
