23 Jun New releases: Navy Kenzo, Chimurenga Renaissance and Morwesi
Navy Kenzo has released their latest hit single Viza. The track features one of Tanzania’s rising hip hop stars, Young D and it was produced by superstar producer Nahreel who is one half of Navy Kenzo. The duo decided to take a different angle with this single which has more of a hip hop feel to it and the change has worked in their favor as this song is a real banger with a catchy chorus and an urban beat that you can’t help but turn up to.
Gospel legend in the making, Morwesi has released her second album Another Level which was recorded live in Bloemfontein. The album is a combination of original compositions as well as traditional gospel classics with an added spin to them and it includes her hit singles, Amen and Modimo Ona.
Chimurenga Renaissance of Shabazz Palaces has released an EP, Defenders of The Crusades. The EP features the popular statement track Don’t and Pop Killer. Produced by Seattle producer OC Notes, the EP is a fusion of American and African influences as it has audible mbira notes coupled with some old school hip hop beats, this composite makes for a killer combo.
