from the look of things 2021, will be a great year for the entertainment industry!

Despite 2020 being one of the most challenging years we have had to face, the year 2021 offers us positive vibes. The Entertainment industry was hit hard by Global Pandemic but is about to rise from the Covid-19 ashes.

Musicians had to go back to the drawing board; event organisers had to cancel gigs and concerts, theatres closed down, films sets were delayed; one way or another, everyone felt a painful pinch.

However, as the showbiz industry slowly found ways to return to normalcy as streaming platforms became the thing, not all was lost. Deejays blessed us with live mixes, musicians held virtual album launches and nostalgic Drive-In film screenings made a timely comeback.

It’s no doubt, up and coming musicians will have a smooth ride this year, as a number of them were able to branch out easily thanks to various online platforms. The likes of 16-year-old Trio Mio will become a sensation in 2021. His latest release Cheza Kama Wewe Remix that features Mejja, Exray and Nellythegoon has more than two million views on YouTube, just in a month after its release.

Rapper Khaligraph Jones and boy band Sauti Sol have applauded Mio’s music abilities, and hopefully, we might end up with a collabo soon.

Iyanii recently signed under Arrow Boy’s record label ‘Utembe World’ is a new music entrant that we should all be on the lookout for this year. His latest project Memories has gained traction, and pundits project that he will be the next big thing in 2021 and beyond. Others such as Breeder LW, Kahu$h and Chris Kaiga are also poised to dominate the music industry.
