Derek Debru (UG)

Derek co-organizes MTN Nyege Nyege Festival, "a twisted gathering where 4,000 gays come and practice open sex and evil rituals in a lush green forest" according to the most informed critics but somewhat of a transformational festival according to the organizers. The annual gathering is an offshoot of some of the most notorious underground parties in Kampala and an annual reunion of many different East African scenes, while also serving as a platform to present two homegrown labels : nyege nyege tapes and hakuna kulala, The labels are part of Boutiq Studios, an open and safe space/arts incubator for East/Central African artists to reside, create and collaborate on music and film projects that was et up by Derek and Arlen early 2016.
