Tim Lyre – “K.A.P”
Tim Lyre sustains the stellar run he had over the lockdown period with the release of his EP, ‘K.A.P‘. The acronym which stands for Keep Applying Pressure personifies this stance.
The mini-album features collaborations with JVSH, Mafeni and more.
Sneziey – “iZulu”
Idols 15 runner-up, Sneziey launches her career with her debut album, ‘iZulu‘. Written almost entirely by her, the album is steeped in gospel melodies that impeccably display her rich and powerful tone.
Mink’s – “il Ment”
Cameroonian superstar, Mink’s proves that he always has a whole bag of goods to deliver and that is part of the reason why his fans adore him. ‘il Ment’ is a Yako and Alik-produced afrotrap track on which Mink’s narrates a story of a deceptive man who is a pathological liar. The song is a warning to those around such people.
Gemini Major – “Slum Kid”
Super producer, Gemini Major is a cornerstone in South Africa’s hip hop scene. This is clearly evident via the list of collaborators on his new EP, ‘Slum Kid‘. The project has an all-star billing with the likes of AKA, Nasty C and K.O making appearances.
Waje navigates through some reggae terrains as she shows appreciation to the men who do right by the women in their lives on ‘Best Thing‘. At its essence the song is about reciprocity.
Sat-B – “Romantic Sounds”
Award-winning Burundian superstar Sat-B unveils his remarkable debut project ‘Romantic Sounds‘. The 9-track body of work is an assertive statement of his dominance in his native country and his surefire takeover in East Africa.

Paxton – “Undeniable”
Paxton is taking up space and cementing herself in her boldly confident tune, ‘Undeniable‘. The track is a manifestation of self-affirmation which is an attitude that she carries for the entire duration of the song.
Not too long ago, Cornelius SA dropped an afro-tech cut titled ‘Free Your Mind‘. Making it clear that there is always more, he presents to you ‘Andivumi‘ – a summer banger alongside Dee Cee, Unabo and Naomi Tagg.
Focalistic‘s dominance over a gloomy year was somewhat a beacon of hope and reminder of the pre-lockdown inhibition-free days. With his forthcoming album, ‘Sghubu Ses Excellent‘ he intends on ending 2020 with a bang. To mark the countdown to this landmark amapiano album, Swank Sinatra as he also known provides ‘Onoroko’, a mega-collaboration featuring Riky Rick, Semi Tee and Reece Madlisa.
