NAMELESS FEATURED AFRICAN COMPILATION SONY ALBUM
A Sony music album featuring top African acts has been released and Kenya’s Nameless is one of the acts featured in it.
The album, Hello Afrika, inspired by the 2010 FIFA World Cup is yet to hit the Kenyan market though the double-disc had a released date of May 31.
Nameless’s single Coming Home is slotted as the third track in the album. The song is about an African player who must leave his family to play abroad, is said to be one of the double-album’s treasures.
“There was never any way that the different musical styles and artistes from South Africa and the rest of the continent could fit on one official album and so the idea of a double album of strictly African artistes was conceived,” a Sony Music Africa spokesperson says.
Nameless is joined by a host of other stars like Freshlyground, TKZee, Magic System, Nneka and M.I. among others.
Also joining the fray of musical talent is a United Nations song 8 Goals Away that highlights the importance of the eight Millennium Development Goals created by the UN. This inspirational song brings together Kenya’s Eric Wainaina, Benin’s Angelique Kidjo, Senegal’s Baaba Maal, Mozambique’s Mingas, South Africa’s Yvonne Chaka Chaka, HHP, Soweto Gospel Choir and Hugh Masekela and Zimbabwe’s Oliver Mtukudzi.
