Recorded in Kenya, Mega Kpenu Nao (Let it shame you not), is a song that marks the beginning of the AFRI-NA-LADI. A multimedia workshop featuring collaborations between a selection of Africa’s most innovative underground artists happening in Kenya (December 2015 – March,2016).

“For the next 3 months, I’m excited to continue to collaborate with and be inspired by my peers. AFRI-NA-LADI simply means Back to the Basics, Making something out of nothing and that is the minimalist principle we intend to apply in creating magic throughout this residency starting with this song and video. I believe in the power of a united front especially one involving Africa’s most unique artists and collectives. It is both a privilege and honor to be able to do this. Together we hope to discover and share the best of ourselves with you. ” – Jojo Abot
