"Nyege Nyege is a festival. It's a label. It's a residency space. It's an ethos. It's a crew of ragtag artist and producers and it's a place for people to come together and sort of create alternative ways of being and appreciating music in Kampala," Kampire mentions. "One of the beautiful things about the festival and the parties is that I think it's one of the more diverse settings that you can party in Kampala."
