Michael Kiwanuka is an acoustic soul-singer outta Muswell Hill, London. Not too long ago, he released a music video for “One More Night“, a sizzling-hot single off his critically acclaimed “Love & Hate” album.
“Michael Kiwanuka’s stunning second LP proves he’s an artist with something to say. ‘Love & Hate’ is a timely and timeless set of slow-burning soul that recalls Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, and Curtis Mayfield. Produced by Danger Mouse, it sounds of the past and present all at once—as it does in the string-embossed swing of “Black Man in a White World.” – iTunes
Kiwanuka’s ‘Love & Hate’ has been nominated for some pretty prestigious awards. He’s won 2016 BBC Music Awards for Album of the Year and 2017 Worldwide Awards for Album of the Year. Also, in 2012, he won BBC’s ‘Sound of 2012’ award, and in 2016 he gained LOS40 Music Awards’ Critics’ Award.
Kiwanuka’s Ugandan parents fled Idi Amin’s regime in the ’70s and moved to London. Also, Kiwanuka studied jazz at the Royal Academy of Music and pop music at Westminster University.
