18 May FRESH! Sauti Sol ft. Nyanshinki, Obrafour ft Sarkodie, Cassper Nyovest, Le Band, Jeremy Loops, Trigmatic & more
Following their debut single Nakupenda which featured Kenya’s #1 rapper: Khaligraph Jones, the trio are set paving the way for their album in the nearest future while winning over more hearts ever so quickly.
Their new single ‘Move’ is perfect for just about any occasion but even better for some sensual moves on a dimly lit dance floor this weekend!
Obrafour teams up with Sarkodie in a bid to get ‘Moesha‘ back. We can all relate perhaps? A lost lover? This tune should bring you some happiness to soothe the ache; with the highlife vibes peculiar to Ghanaians, the melodious sways of traditional West African vibes in Obrafour’s delivery and of course Sarkodie!
Just about 3 weeks since the release of the video to Ksazobalit!that got everyone talking including several prominent Soth African politicians, Cassper Nyovest shows no signs of diluting the power of the messages through his visuals.
‘Push Through The Pain’ was released last year as part of Thuto the album that undoubtedly will remain a milestone in his career. Sharing the visuals with a most touching and unfortunately all too familiar storyline and under the direction of Nate Thomas this single only too well and painfully so, highlights the fact that again and again, nothing is ever really what it seems.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Ghanaian musician, media personality, social entrepreneur and businessman; Trigmatic, posses this question in the most melodious manner you will hear it today in his new single aptly titled ‘Where We Dey Go?‘ (pidgin for where are we going?).
The production by Genius Selection is brilliant and perfectly placed to carry the message in the talking drums, the cords and several other instruments that give it an air of tales told from times before ours.
Using this single and now the video, B.O.Y Wonder shares the tale of an addict, a little insight to the path one threads based on an array of decisions…perhaps important to point out that even though the addiction to drugs have been used as the focus here, it is in no way restricted to that as one might have oh so many other Vices that have nothing to do with drugs.
In the end, help is an SMS away.
If you are up for a little groove, this is for you! Australian DJ/producer, Cabu couldn’t help but give his magic touch to smash hit Waves by Jeremy Loops.
Calm enough to keep you centred but groovy enough to get the funk out of you!
Sauti Sol team up with Nyanshinski for another single leading up to ‘Afrikan Sauce’ the much built up LP due just before the end of the year.
If the sultry vocals don’t get in your feels, the melody with Fancy Fingers unmissable touch with the strings will!
Inspired by the recent monstrous happenings in Libya, Clique Viral were at once clear on what story they wanted to tell this time and with the artful direction of Dj Lo, the visuals for ‘Makanja’ are attention-grabbing, filled with scenes highlighting infamous issues like children soldiers, slavery and general unrest in most parts of Africa including Nigeria, DRC and Central Africa and they don’t leave you without some food for thought or at the very least, feelings that spark your curiosity.
This group from Zambia; Clique Viral have always managed to showcase their cultural roots while blending their hip-hop/rap skills to finally bring forth one beautiful chain of raw melodies and this one is no different.
Watch Makanja ft Theresa Ng’ambi and let us know what you think.
Nigerian afrobeats musician Timix teams up with Kaysnap in his new single ‘All I Know‘. This is one for the groove where you move like you are too blessed to be stressed.
Known fondly to most as the queen of Jazz in Ghana, this musical beauty showcases just how versatile she can be with her new single ‘All About Love‘.
On the panel unpacking ‘The African Media Music and Entertainment Opportunities’ was CEO of Africori Yoel Kenan along side Dayo Alopade ( YouTube) , Russel Southwood (Balancing Act Africa) and Nikhil Patel (Irokotv).
The group looked at the opportunities existing in the African entertainment space and the crucial role technology plays in advancing the industry and giving everyone a chance to fight to be the best using all the resources available effectively.
