Have you ever wondered what a Nigerian and South African street-hop collab would sound like? Look no further, Naira Marley alongside Busiswa got the right answer for you. The South African renders her verse in her local dialect as she sprinkles that Amapiano dust on this sexual-themed banging tune.
Nigerian street-hop act, Small Doctor taps Afrobeat heavyweight, Davido for the remix of “Mandeman” as they pass a subtle message to their competitors that ‘no be say them no get, but e no choke’.
Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy joins Justin Bieber on this tune off the Canadian singer’s latest studio project titled “Justice”. Burna boy duly delivered the goods on this jam. The duo of Justin Bieber and Burna boy looked like the perfect combo for this mid-tempo track.
The Chopstix produced track is the first official offering from MI as the lead act. The African rapper number one recruits the lyrical assassin, Sinzu and lyrical wordsmith, Erigga. The rappers take turns to deliver mad punchlines as “This Beat Dey Knock”.
Nigerian rapper, Zoro releases this brand new single titled, “DTTW (Oneme)” featuring Akuchi and Plvyboypluto. The song was produced by Lazy.
Ghanaian fast-rising act, Gyakie joins forces with Next-rated music star, Omah Lay on the remix of “Forever”. The song maintains its original tempo but they shake-up things on this version as it sounds like two lovers reassuring each other of their love for the other.
Crayon taps “rush” rapper, Bella Shmurda to deliver this unique blend of afrobeats and street-hop dubbed, “Jackpot”.
Nigerian songstress, Teni is expressive on this tune off her debut album “Wondaland”, as she declares “I want to enter, enter center”. She also has some words of praises for her baby as she hails his balling skills which is similar to “Okocha”.
Award-winning Ghanaian musician, M.anifest teams up with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa and Miloy on “No Fear”. The sound of stuttering synths on this jam is a piece of cake I would want you to have a taste.
