Ugandan Hip-Hop recording artist Ajo has released NUBA, the second single off his forthcoming Album titled “African Reality.”
Ajo described Nuba as a collective term used for the various indigenous peoples who inhabit the Nuba. Mountains of South Kordofan state in Sudan. Although the term is used to describe them as if they composed a single group, the Nuba is an umbrella term encompassing multiple distinct peoples that speak different languages, often belonging to unrelated language families.
“The term should not be confused with the Nubians, an ethnic group speaking the Nubian languages, although the Hill Nubians, who live in the Nuba Mountains, are also considered part of the Nuba geographic grouping of peoples” – Ajo.
The rapper further stated that Nuba is a song about African Identity. This song refocuses the attention on self-worth and acceptance of who we are as Africans from skin colour to mental tenacity.
The song points out some of the outstanding characters in African History such as Shaka of the Zulu Kingdom, Mansa Musa of the Mali Empire, Kabalega of the Bunyoro Kingdom, Emorimori of Teso among others.
This Song highlights the state of life in Africa with personal description of how it feels to be part of Africa. It’s not the entire continent’s perception but a perception of through Ajo’s looking glass. This song also points out some of the gruesome acts that have been crippling the continent including and encourages Africans to raise the vail that is blinding them so that they see more clearly what the world is offering.
