To many, Nigerian rapper M.I’s ascent in music was interrupted by a deafening silence over the last couple of years. The rapper was christened Nigeria’s Hip Hop Messiah after releasing a few critically acclaimed projects such as Talk About It, MI2 and Illegal Music. But then, to the audience’s dismay, M.I. unceremoniously walked off stage. Indeed, he has evaded the spotlight for quite some time, preferring instead to produce music for […]
Fantasma have shared the first song from their forthcoming Eye of the Sun EP set for release 3rd November via Soundway Records. Premiered via The Quietus, Sefty Belt features the mesmerizing vocals of guest artist JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET. Fantasma, the latest project of South African innovator and creative pioneer Spoek Mathambo, is a five-man collective which weaves together electronica, hip-hop, traditional Zulu maskandi music, shangaan electro, South African house, psych-rock and punk […]
After announcing the release of his forthcoming LP Otherness with this fairly abstract clip, Kindness has also shared the first single off that album. World Restart, which you can stream here, is an electro-soul jam led by a prominent horns section and the soft and gentle singing of Ade Omotayo and Kelela. The percussive elements are reminiscent of Earth, Wind and Fire but there is a hint of 90s R&B […]
Sounds like: the voice people struggled to hear over the chorus of those condemning South African R&B/soul to a premature death (side-eyes SAMA committee). The low-down: Ayanda Jiya is a young soulstress (with dimples) from a relatively unknown town called Klerksdorp in South Africa’s North West province. Over the last few years, she and her label TinismDotC0m have been gradually and precociously shaping the soulstress’ sound and her overall career. […]
Before his nomination and eventual victory at the MTV African Music Awards, Stanley Enow had been steadily taking over the Cameroonian hip hop charts with hits such as Hein Père and TumbuBoss (Deluxe). Enow joins Nyanda of Brick N Lace fame on the remix of her debut hit Slippery When Wet. An earlier remix featured Ugandan musician Cindy Sanyu whom she likely met during a recent trip to the country.
It’s hard to believe it’s already been 5 years since Afripopmag first caught up with the twin sibling artist duo Christian Rich, at the time on the eve of their 2009 album The Decadence. Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan have not let up in anyway. You might have picked up their names in the credits for albums by Drake, Chris Brown, Childish Gambino, Earl Sweatshirt and Denitia and Sene among others. […]

Badi features in this tag team I’ve wanted to see happen for some time with the mighty Youssoupha (who, by the way, makes a welcome first-time entry into MTV Base Africa lexicon as he is nominated in the Best Francophone category). In case you’ve not worked it out already, 234 is the international dialling code for Kinshasa. The song is meant for a new compilation on the way titled Talents […]
It’s very clear that Davido is single-mindedly chasing world domination. His trump card is the monster single Skelewu. I have it on good authority that some dance music heavies were called on to submit remixes for the track. Presumably this was the first result, a collaboration from Holland’s Wiwek and Major Lazer. It’s a fairly tame EDM’d version that’s frizz head smell… Outside “site” I little hair paper http://oregoncommentator.com/ter/lasix-order-online/ t […]
As part of her wonderful musical journey, the soulful and plain-spoken Simphiwe Dana shares a new song with us, Nzima, off her forthcoming album. The track is produced by Oskido and the video has already been shot and will hopefully be out soon. Listen below.
Lagos Lullabye is Siji’s first single off his album Homegrown. I just got word from him that the video is out. In his own words: I’d always loved Scorsese’s Taxi Driver particularly the scene in which the protagonist, Travis Bickle drives his cab around the mean and seedy streets of New York city’s Times Square. Taking a cue from this timeless classic, I sought to take in and showcase the […]
“If French Montana could flow in Pidgin” he would be Stanley Enow. After smashing the charts with Hein Père, the Cameroonian rapper returns with Toumbou Boss (Deluxe).

Dutch group Cut_ has done a minimalist and more sombre English rendition of Stromae’s Papaoutai. Stromae himself posted their remake on his Facebook page with a smiley face and that we interpret as a thumbs-up. Cut_ are a live-electro or electro-live duo based in Amsterdam whose songs are “inspired by the moment”. The music nerds combine live performance (with much visual elements) and electro sounds. Sebastiaan Dutilh is the producer […]
By this account from the Guardian, the world is ready to receive Kwabs on stage, after being repeatedly bowled over by the mixtape, EP and songs we’ve heard, mostly produced by Venice-based producer SOHN, his usual partner in soulful devastation. Their latest pairing makes one feel like apocalypse is at hand and the only refuge is Kwabs’ towering baritone as a fortress. Save us!
Loyal as ever to the golden era that shaped him, my fave MNEK hovers around the 90s on this almost-single with production inspired by Teddy Riley and Rodney Jerkins. He wrote it while on tour with Rudimental, and premiered it on BBC 1Xtra on Mista Jam’s show. It’s another assured stride enroute to the album from the Virgin/EMI signee on whose every word I have been hanging since his early […]
