Last year at Reeperbahn Festival International @ Accra we took the chance to speak with Joe Chialo (Senior Vice President A&R Universal Music Central Europe & Africa, Managing Director Airforce1 Records) amongst others about the advantages of a closer connection to the European scene for African labels and agencies and how collaborations defeat the hurdle of mutual exchange. Watch the interview here.
