The NBA is launching a professional basketball league in Africa that will feature 12 teams from several countries across the continent. No wonder we spotted popular Nigerian artist Ycee, South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest, Sho Madjoze, Moozlie and Tanzanian’s sweetheart Vanessa Mdee over the weekend at the NBA All-star weekend.
These stars were all hosted in Charlotte by UMGB and NBA Africa, a division of Universal Music Group in efforts to build the bridge between music and sport.

Congratulations to #NBAAfrica for this incredible moment that would have been impossible without the tireless dedication of Amadou and the whole team. Really glad I was here for this and I look forward to seeing the rest of this story unfold⛹🏾♂️❤️🚀
