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.

The performance was a taste of what we can expect from Priddy Ugly when he has his Bacardi House Party Session on 26 January 2019.

Kenyan Rastafarians Want Cannabis Unbanned for Religious Reasons

The Rastafari Society of Kenya argues that the personal use of cannabis, which is currently outlawed in the country, is an integral part of their religion.

According to local media reports, the Rastafari Society of Kenya has gone before the High Court to argue in favour of the personal use of cannabis. Currently illegal in Kenya, the minority religious group argues that the laws criminalising the use of cannabis in Kenya are prejudiced towards their religion given that the substance is a "sacrament connecting believers to their creator." Cannabis is commonly used as incense to initiate religious practises by Rastafarians and is often followed by a series of praises and prayers.
