Meet Noeva (above) – Zambia’s representative at the first ever Largest African concert in Europe. The concert will be held on 27th August 2012 at the prestigous Wembley Arena, in London.
Noeva is a singer/songwriter straight out of Zambia based in the UK. For the past couple of months she’s been steady on her grind, recording some incredible material that’s she’s now ready to showcase. Noeva is definitely one to watch in 2012. “Lonely Days” is Noeva‘s first promo single and it just shows the immense talent possessed by this young singer. The Etta James sampled track was produced by Delerious, who recently produced Stylo G and Chipmunk‘s club banger “Dash Out”. “Lonely Days” subtly brings Motown vibes to 2012 with Noeva‘s smooth soulful voice and incredible vocal range, complimented by its noir styled visuals and live performance narrative which really brings the track to life.Other African artistes that will be performing at this Historic include:
Femi Kuti; 2Face Idibia; Fally Ipupa; Sakordie; Iyanya; Cabo Snoop; Zakes Bantwini; Flavour; R2Bees; Eddie Kadi; Zahara; DJ Edu; Winky D; Mista Silva; DJ Arafat; Madtraxx and Chameleone. Quite a line up!
