After last year’s trio of Banky W, eLDee and Tiwa Savage thrilled Nigerians with series of club tour performances, a music collaboration and video, M.I (who returns for his third time) and Naeto C will be headlining the sixth edition of the annual music project.
“In 2009 I supported the Hennessy Artistry urban music competition by headlining the Finale concert. In 2010 I was privileged to be part of the collaboration with Sir Shina Peters, and then last year although I wasn’t part of the official campaign, I was invited by Hennessy to travel to France with Banky W, Eldee and Jesse Jagz. I’m revved up!” M.I said.
“It is going to be an experience you won’t forget in a hurry,” Naeto C added.
Hennessy Artistry 2012 will kick off with the release of the headliners’ collaboration track, after which a 22-stop club tour with rising artists will follow. The duo will also be recording a theme song for this year’s project.
Here’s the video interview of M.I. and Naeto discussing rap music and Hennessy Artistry.
