Fresh from the realms of releasing his third studio album, “Afro Love”, tagged “The Voice of Modern Afropop,” Nigerian singer, songwriter, and performer Ric Hassani (born name Ikechukwu Eric Ahiauzu is set to perform in Kampala (Uganda) next month.
His much- awaited performance in Kampala will be at the forthcoming Edition of Shorts Na Lesu on the 13th of January at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds, following a previous effort by the “Thunder Fire You” crooner in 2020, which was hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
