The artistic collective Queendom was established in 1999. Now, almost two decades later, Queens Asta Busingye and Monica Ifejilika are reintroducing Queendom as a purely musical endeavor.
They call themselves 'Afropean' and their genre 'Africana', because the sound of Queendom is a musical blend, mixing elements from the African continent with European and American styles. Lyrically, the Norwegian/Ugandan/Nigerian duo are uncompromising as they reshape and restructure their message from young rebel queens to grown women, who are now both mothers and queens.
The first single from their upcoming album is a collaboration with folk soul artist Numa Edema. "How They Were" is an evocative piece of music, telling the story of lovers in both pain and love.
