Bacardi House Party Sessions 2018The house party scene gets a musical injection with the Bacardi House Party Sessions. The world’s number one premium rum is back to get South Africa moving in 2018.

Bacardi has paired up four big hit acts with four young up and coming artists. To kick off in style, Bacardi are announcing their 2018 artist collaborations with a fresh house party video shot in the Carribean setting of Brian Lara – watch

Each of the eight chosen artists lives the Bacardi brand. Nadia Nakai, arguably one of the best female emcees in the game, will be paired up with  26-year-old rising rap star Priddy Ugly. They’ll be joined by Mayo hitmaker DJ Speedsta and ‘David Genaro’ hitmaker, Yung Swiss.
