The founders beieve in the creative arts economy as a potentail income greater than any resources found under the ground. They run two labels that include the Nyege nyege tapes and hakuna kulala and have both received International critical acclaim.

To artists, Nyege Nyege can make careers the same way it has made designers and restaurants, right there and then, with over 40 international bookers in attendance, an underground artist has the chance to break through.
