Having recently moved to London from Denmark, Negash Ali is set to have a promising year ahead of him as he releases his brand new EP ‘The African Dream’. He has also recently penned a song on Jadakiss' forthcoming album featuring Chris Brown which is slated to be the first single release.
In the past, the 23-year-old has opened up for the likes of Nas, Damian Marley, Ne-Yo and Wiz Khalifia as well as playing Hip Hop Kemp and Splash, two of Europe's biggest festivals. This year he will be opening for Dom Kennedy at his two UK shows.
Last week, he released the powerful new video for the lead single from the EP, 'Fire In The Sky' featuring Siff. The video matches the strength and intensity of the track perfectly which talks through his life growing up; his mother fleeing Eritrea, to living in a refugee camp and then eventually moving to London.
