28 Sep ☺ Afro Fresh: Navy Kenzo ft Diamond Platnumz, Classiq, Ishmael, Jarrad Ricketts, Angie Santana & more
All hail the king of the North!Sounds from Nigeria have before now, been heavily dominated by the West & East of the country in the global commercial scale and there couldn’t be a better time for a strong entry of a new sound. ClassiQ is here to instigate this change.
With a flow, delivery, production and writing that would rival your cuurent favourite, ‘New North’ sees the hip-hop act performing in both Hausa and English and features Ice Prince, Yung L, Ckay and a previously released single Gudu with M.I Abaga.
The project isan easy listen with a varying blend of genres from the rap bars to the groovy hooks. You’ve got to share this!
Here’s a recipe for a viral HIT!Go back in time, take that kids show everyone loved, reminisce on the theme song then sample it into a groovy production speaking of dreams and the hustle it takes to achieve them.
That would be our guess of how Ishmael‘s latest viral single featuring Bongani Radebe was made. ‘Ever Since’ (Takalani)’ is a sample from the South African version of Sesame Street; Takalani translates to happiness in TshiVenda

Nahreel on the beat equals FIRE track!Sultry duo Navy Kenzo most certainly does not disappoint on the ultra-thumping ‘Katika’, a song which proves to be a calabash of sounds from around the world.
The banger features another who is no stranger to creating hits, Diamond Platnumz. From the first few seconds in, the song instantly gratifies the top billing of both the lead and featured artists.
