Watch Flavour's 'I'm For Real'

We first heard Flavour’s I’m For Real a few days before Valentine’s weekend. The release was either serendipitous or purposeful because as he explained then, he wanted to create a song that his fans could “celebrate love with”. Wanting to convey raw, uninhibited emotion, I’m For Real does not have the usual bells and whistles that are often a feature of Flavour’s highlife music. It is perhaps the clearest recording […]

 

 
 
 

Jazz and Soul Artist Kellylee Evans Covers Stromae’s 'Alors on Danse'

Yet another artist has been inspired by Stromae’s melancholic but beguiling music. Canadian jazz and soul artist Kellylee Evans made an English version of the Belgian artist’s dance hit Alors On Danse for her fourth album I Remember When. And So We Dance is just one of the many covers she has done for that album where she appears as the bandleader. It was released on Canadian iTunes in February […]

The song samples old school video game sounds and features the piano that is nearly ubiquitous in his music. In Loving You he professes his love to his partner and also promises to cross the seven seas for her, even […]

 

 
 
 

Watch HHP and M.anifest's 'Jigah'

Hip hop heavyweights HHP and M.anifest released their collaborative effort, Jigah, in May of this year. Jigah is a reminder of sorts to “every George of the jungle [who] wants to be Simba”, that while HHP and M.anifest are kings in their own right, together they are indomitable. Their declarations are punctuated with the refrain “chale me si me jigah” which is Twi for “I’m fired up” or “I’m amped […]

Get to Know: South African Rapper PdotO

Sounds like: 2am on a Saturday night with a drink in the air, with a complexity that intrigues you at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon. The lowdown: Born Siphelele Mnyande, the Pretoria via Eastern Cape rapper has been growing a steady fan base with the mixtapes ‘Street Novelty’, ‘The BluMurda tape’ and ‘Mind over Matter: The EP’ while appearances on Bongani Fassie’s Rise, L-Tido’s All or Nothing and stablemate BlakLez’s debut Black Beast has only strengthened his presence […]

 

Listen to Christian Rich's 'Better To' Featuring DWNTWN

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 and Youssoupha Rep Kinshasa on '#234' (Listen+Download)

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 […]

 

 
 
 

AfriPOP it or Drop it? Major Lazer and Wiwek Remix Davido's 'Skelewu'

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 […]

Watch 'Keep Walking' by Kwesta and Car Crash Burn

There seems to be a lot of cross-pollination in the South African music scene lately. Many of these mixes have led to widely successfully singles, with Spin My World Around (by Dj Kent and The Arrows) and Pluto (Remember You) – by DJ Clock and Beatenberg – being prominent examples. However, Motswako artist Khuli Chana and the beloved Parlotones had a less popular collaboration late last year. More recently, Naima […]

 

 
 
 

Watch 'Lagos Lullabye', Siji's New Video

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 […]
