Afika Nxumalo has returned to the place where he was born and raised. After years of performing in Greensboro-based hip-hop septet, The Urban Sophisticates, he spent over a decade away in London and Brooklyn launching his solo music career. He’s since made his return home and looks forward to plugging his big city experience into his hometown’s blossoming creative class. Earlier this year, his song, “Chosen,” was featured in a movie trailer for the Warner Bros. Studio film, Judas and the Black Messiah.
