African music streaming platform AudioMack has earmarked the biggest talent from Africa to look out for in 2022 and Uganda’s Azawi is among the named artistes.

Through their online blog by UK based Afrobeats, Dj Edu, listed the 5 biggest new continental movers of Afrobeats that include Moelogo, Eugy both of Nigerian descent, Ngobile (South African), Bruce Melodie (Rwandese) and Azawi.

“Uganda native Azawi is an Afrobeats singer-songwriter with a great ear for percussion, likely because she fell in love with music after frequenting dance festivals as a child, joining a dance troupe back in 2005. Initially starting her foray into the music industry proper as a songwriter for other artists, she’s recently stepped into her own, making music deeply inspired by her Ugandan background,” DJ Edu’s submitted on Azawi .

This comes days after Azawi was named Uganda’s best female artist of 2021, best Album and Best Afrobeat song at the inaugural Janzi Award.
