Kenny Allstar x Flex ‘N’ Finesse (Feat. Joresy, Cass STP, Ms Banks & Tion Wayne)

Who doesn’t love a posse cut? Something for everyone right? This one is pretty great, in particular Ms Banks but also shout out the wrestling line as well. This is great UK afropop, following along with the muted afrobeats trend like Moelogo, Kwmaz and Flava and Mr Silva.

Kwamz & Flava x Go Mad (Feat. Mr Silva)

So Kazabon’s fave duo Kwamz and Flava are back this time with afrobeat stalwart Mr Silva. The track is a breezy afropop track has about 900 different dancers in it. We are mad at that.

Mista Silva x Goes Down

This feels very very very much like an old Burna Boy track but we love that sort of stuff round here so why not get involved. The dancing in the video is pretty great as well. In fact the tutorial dance video for this song almost has a million views.

Dj Tjaey x Trap Trap in The Bando

One of the best things about the internet is seeing the trends come about. For the most part viral success has been a mainstay of Black America. More often than not it bubbles up before someone in the mainstream takes it and uses it for their own. London hasn’t really until now.

This edit of Grizzy and Mdargg Look Like You takes on a pseudo jersey/coupe decale flip of the UK road rap hit. It’s smart and great and vibey and more importantly danceable. Taking a tired Trap/ Road rap song and adding an afrohouse how twist is great. This has also lead to some amazing vines like this one and this one

P-Square Ft Awilo Longombo x Enemy Solo

Naija’s P Square collaborate with Congolese singer Awilo Longombo on their latest one, and as always the video (directed by clarence Peters) features a whole lot of energy and a whole lot of dancing!
