Tubaba & Naeto C

Tuface “Tubaba” Idibia, M.I. aka “The Short Black Boy“, Naeto C, Bez, Seun Kuti  & Egypt 80 (Nigeria), Blitz the Ambassador (Ghana), Chief Boima (Sierra Leone), Sauti Sol & Just A Band (Kenya), Spoek Mathambo (South Africa), Baloji (Congo),  became the first Africans to perform at leading music industry event South by Southwest (SXSW) 2012 last Friday!!

All this awesomeness brought by yet-to-be-launched digital music platform, Spinlet whose main goal was to showcase Africa’s top music stars at the South by Southwest (SXSW) 2012 for the first time ever.

It was a packed house,with alot of Africans from around Texas for coming out to support the African artists.
