African community awardsAFRONEWS AWARDS 2023. D Ukingo has been nominated for Best African Music Video in Germany at the AFRONEWS Awards 2023.

Who is D Ukingo

D Ukingo is an Afro-Hiphop artist, Songwriter, Composer and Co-Producer from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. His passion for music was born in him from childhood in his country Tanzania. Here, D Ukingo discovered his passion for writing, a passion that he pours into music composing his first songs.

The year 2010 he released his first mixtape – a series of freestyle rap content. 2018 happened to be his turning point: he published his first EP entitled “Safari Na Muziki” means travelling with music.

The Album combines Hiphop with other sounds such as Afrobeats and Bongo Flava.

This has been his strength from the beginning: to have a complete vision of music to combine various elements such as Hiphop, Blues, Soul and Reggae to create his own style.

D Ukingo`s art has no boundaries, as he came to perform on the same stage at a summer festival in Hohenberg with the legendary Culcha Candela, a dancehall, hip hop, house and reggae group from Berlin, Germany.​

Together with his music band,”D Ukingo na Bendi” they won the 1st prize in a Band Contest summer 2022 in Germany. An interesting format with Jasmin Wagner;”Kleine Bühne, Große Chance” – meaning ‘small stage, big chance’ from SWR(Südwest Rundfunk) the biggest Broadcasting Company in Germany.

D Ukingo made extra effort to fly to Barcelona together with his producer and director, Tony Slay, just to create this amazing music video to the song titled ‘Cuddle’. The music video was shot by Tony Slay, a well known artist, producer and Filmmaker based in Stuttgart.

The video quality is amazing, storytelling is fantastic and the shots are impeccable.
