In Photos: Priddy Ugly & Nadia Nakai on Bacardi Live Sessions

Go behind the scenes with Priddy Ugly and Nadia Nakai at their Bacardi Live Sessions.

South African rapper Nadia Nakai paired up with Priddy Ugly for the first iteration of this year's Bacardi Live Sessions. The series sees two artists (one established, and the other up-and-coming) pairing up for a performance in which the emerging artist performs their songs.


Priddy Ugly performed three songs in front of Nadia Nakai who was chilling like the boss she is in the background. Priddy Ugly's set consisted of "Tshela" from his 2017 album E.G.Y.P.T. and two new songs to be included in the deluxe version of the album releasing this Friday.

Priddy Ugly's stage presence is unmatched—he's light on his feet, and him and his producer Wichi 1080, always display chemistry be it on live shows or records.

Below, are some photos from behind the scenes of the session, which is yet to be released online.

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
