In the realm of music, fate often orchestrates unexpected collaborations that redefine an artist’s trajectory. Azawi, the rising Ugandan sensation, recently spilled the beans on the serendipitous story behind her collaboration with Jamaican dancehall maestro Konshens on Summer Bae song.
During an exclusive interview with Galaxy FM, Azawi unraveled the tale of her musical genesis. The genesis occurred at Roast And Rhyme, where she took her first steps into the industry’s vibrant landscape, delivering an impromptu freestyle of one of Konshens’ tracks that swiftly went viral.
Azawi’s journey then took her to Kenya, where she showcased her freestyle prowess once again during an interview at Trace. Calvin, the presenter, vowed to ensure that the clip reached Konshens, and he delivered on his promise.
The plot thickened as Azawi unveiled a connection beyond borders. Konshens, it turns out, has close friends working as journalists in Kenya. Jimany, one of them, shared a conversation where Konshens inquired about the talented Azawi.
But it wasn’t just through intermediaries—Azawi and Konshens were engaged in direct messaging, solidifying her status as a dedicated fan. Her initial plan to remix “Ten Over Ten” took an unexpected turn when Konshens suggested a fresh collaboration.
Seizing the opportunity, Azawi swiftly sent Konshens the track for her song “Summer Bae,” part of her acclaimed “Sankofa” EP. In a harmonious blend of creativity, Konshens added his magic, recording his part, and together they crafted a collaboration that transcended borders.
This tale of chance encounters, social media connections, and shared passion exemplifies the power of music to unite artists across continents. Azawi’s journey from an impromptu performance at Roast And Rhyme to a transcontinental collaboration with Konshens showcases the unpredictable beauty of the musical odyssey.
