Tonight, Trevor features an interview with MICHAEL KIWANUKA, an English singer & songwriter who recently won the 2020 Mercury Prize for his third album, Kiwanuka.... Back in 2012 we recorded a RNZ Live session with Michael and even then one had a sense that he was destined for great things. We had a quick chat and he performed live 3 songs: I'm Getting Ready, Home Again and a cover of the Jimmy Hendrix song May This Be Love.
