“They are a group of singers from the city of Kampala, living in England” said Global Fusion director Louisa Le Marchand. “They are also fantastic dancers and actresses in their own right. Milly and Essence are actually soap stars in Uganda so there’ll be a lot of talent there.

“They will perform with Eben Oke and the Yoruba Soul-Jazz Band, an incredible band originally from Nigeria but now based in Woolwich. They are top African jazz musicians who will do their own spot as well.”
