• In the song, Elly tells the story of 'Hamadi' as Navio tells us his own
Ugandan Rap King Navio is back with ‘Hamadi’, a new single and video featuring the late Ugandan music legend Elly Wamala.
'Hamadi' is Navio’s first single of the year.
This collaboration is iconic and a show of a very strong Ugandan identity.
'Hamadi' was first recorded half a century ago and struck a chord with the people of the time: real, uncompromising and storytelling.
Navio said it was important to the family of Elly Wamala that he brought back the classic and legends to life.
Navio said the making of 'Hamadi' was memorable. It was recorded by Baru with the video delivered by Ugandan stamp of quality Sasha Vybz.
It’s also Navio’s first song playlisted on major DSPs off his 'Vibes Out The East’ album (2022).
