Watch ‘Nuba’ by Ugandan HipHop Artist Ajo
Nuba is a collective term used for the various indigenous peoples who inhabit the Nuba. Mountains of South Kordofan state in Sudan. Although the term is used to describe them as if they composed a single group, the Nuba is an umbrella term encompassing multiple distinct peoples that speak different languages, often belonging to unrelated language families.
The new record by Ugandan Hiphop act Ajo refocuses the attention on self-worth and acceptance of who we are as Africans from skin colour to mental tenacity. The song points out some of the outstanding characters in African History such as Shaka of the Zulu Kingdom, Mansa Musa of the Mali Empire, Kabalega of the Bunyoro Kingdom, Emorimori of Teso among others.
Born 18th may 1988 to a Dr. Atai Anne and Mr. James Okaali. Ajo has established himself as a vibrant and outspoken rapper with an impressive emulsion of wit, literacy and character in his lyrics a skill which has led many to describe him as an intersection of hip hop talent.
