For our ‘Mid Week Magic’, we feature new music video from one of Chocolate City’s finest; Dice Ailes.
In the brand new visuals for ‘Mr Biggs‘ Dice is looking for the love of his life for whom he would do anything.
The video starts in a barn with Dice name dropping impressive gifts he could get for his love. From Sweet Sensation to a petrol station or maybe a tomato plantation, but certainly the classic Nigerian fast food establishment; Mr Biggs. All the while she is tied up and drowning in a pool of murky water.
In the search for her, he collects clues which are connected to his memories for his leading lady. Eventually, boy saves girl in a classic tale and all’s well that ends well.
Nothing gets our musical hearts going like the sounds of celebration for the African Woman!
Crazy full with talent, A-List producer Reinhard Tega works with powerful vocalist Funbi, famous for his hit single Hallelujah – in this dedication to the confident, strong, talented, funny, beautiful and all round amazing African woman; ‘Arewa‘.
Arewa is not only lyrically qualified to get you in a good mood, the sonic dance feel to the single gives it a melodious ring that only reminds us why we love Reinhard.

Third is a charm, and this one is right on the mark.
Keeping to their mandate for most of the year, Kenya’s
#1 band Sauti Sol teams up with the Soke crooner and boundary breaker; Burna Boy for what is fast becoming another anthem in celebration of the Afrikan woman.
Taken also off their incoming LP ‘Afrikan Sauce’ due at the end of the year, ‘Afrikan Star‘ is a melodic love song that takes its glorious rhythm from careful string work of Fancy Fingers and the mellow heartwarming vocals of the band and Burna Boy.
We wouldn’t be finishing this African Love story right if we didn’t tell you that the visual are made for your eyes with cozy dark rooms, harmonizing men and sexy melanin reading women.

Legendary African Act; Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi stuns us all with another fresh body of work; ‘Hany’ga‘ which means Concern when translated to English.
With his very rich and thrilling vocals, Dr Mtukudzi brings to life sounds that can only be described as animating, with beautiful instrumentals; outstanding string work and soothing backing vocals all blended to showcase a rich African musical delivery.
This maestro has poured his heart out in words and music with the assistance of the various musicians who came into the studio and contribute musically to the final collection of songs we now have and call Hany’ga “Concern” in English.
“Best For You” is beautifully musically mixed, there is of course the classic afrobeats with just enough dance element to open it up to a larger audience with varying tastes.
Already off to a great start with a world premiere yesterday on Trans Africa Radio‘s late evening show ‘The Re Up‘ to very positive feedback, Best For You is one for your playlists, personal and otherwise.
