Maimouna Youssef Launches #TheMuvement Kickstarter Campaign + "Tell My Story" [Video]
Grammy-nominated vocalist Maimouna Youssef has launched #TheMuvementKickstarter campaign to fund her sophomore studio LP. The campaign launched at the top of October alongside the official video for "Tell My Story" - Mumu's reflective rework of Drake's "Pound Cake" - directed by Brian "B. Kyle" Atkins. Along with the album, the campaign will also fund three new music videos and Maimouna's first independent world tour. The impending project already boasts features from musical heavyweights Femi Kuti and Chucky Thompson. Backers have access to a number of incentives including signed advance copies of the project and backstage passes to Maimouna Youssef shows. #TheMuvement campaign is slated to close on October 31st, just after Maimouna wraps her upcoming performances in New Zealand and Australia with Common.
