UMG Brasil

Pattricia Britto, Manager, Artist & Label Relations Brazil, says: “When I heard Vitão for the first time I knew he was going to be a star. He has the talent, charisma, attitude, and determination necessary to bring him to the top.

“I couldn’t be happier about his selection for DSCVR ‘Artists To Watch’ 2020. Vitão’s sound is a mix of samba, funk and urban music which represents the Brazilian culture very well.

“Brazil is a rich combination of different cultures and Vitão translates it beautifully on his music and stage presence.”



Gabi Corbett, Manager, Music & Talent, says: “Such an exciting group whose sound is a blend of Afro sound on a dancehall beat.

“The group are from East London, consisting of six artists repping Ghana/Nigeria and were some of the pioneers of Afro Bashment, which is dominating the music scene right now – and rightly so!  Infectious rhythm and flow which is a must on our ‘Artists To Watch’ list!

“Paired with production from Jae5 their tracks and dance moves are seriously wavey and dominated this years festivals and charts! Get the moves learnt and enjoy!”
