17 Aug ?Afro Fresh: Vusi Nova, A-Q & Loose Kaynon, Makwa, Tony Ross, Eazzy & more
Fix your crown!The first in a 3 phase plan to fix the crown of the Nigerian hip-hop scene (& West Africa by extension) is the release of ‘Crown‘ by Chocolate City and imprint label 100 Crowns.
The 10 tracked project is not a very unlikely but a bit of an unexpected collaboration between two of the country’s talented lyricists and perhaps, underrated rappers who’ve held fast to their strict lanes of what their hip-hop has to sound like regardless of the new waves and trends.
A-Q & Loose Kaynon enlist the help of Show Dem Camp, Debbie Romeo, Blaqbonez & a few others to deliver a compelling body of work in Crown. Love hip-hop? Press play!
Let the Afro rythmn take charge of your soul for 12 tracks!He’s South Africa’s most loved multi-platinum selling Afro-soul / Afro-pop act and he’s all set with another collection ‘Manyan-Nyan‘. Vusi Nova tells his and our truths in this album and regardless of whether or not you understand to the letter, the tales he tells, the truth lies in the rhythm and the melodies and you’ve just got to let it speak to you.
The album features Zahara in the leading single Usezondibona, Bongani Radebe, Jessica Mbangeni, Kelly Khumalo, O47 and Ntando Bangene in others.
The track, which features RapLyf labelmate, Kid X, is a reminder that even though one may be faced with unfortunate circumstances at the moment all will change and your light shall be the brightest when your time has arrived.
For the big money spenders this weekend!
Taking over the local charts, Dj sets home and abroad, ‘Container’ by Chocolate City’s Ckay needs to be your all-time MOOD!
Produced by Mix Master Garzy (Stonebwoy, Diamond Platnumz, Davido, Sarkodie…) ‘Obaa Gbemi‘ is a classic blend of Ghana’s highlife and the new school Afrobeat.
The ones that got away…
