Showa Shins & Starboy Willz (Feat. Stormzy) x Jupa

Stormzy on Afropop! Stormzy on Afropop! Stormzy on Afropop! That’s about it, the song is pleasant, Starboy Willz doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Starboy Entertainment aka Wizkid’s label.The steel pans are a nice touch alongside the piano flourishes.

Timaya x Sanko Remixes

Sanko has been a staple in our sets since hearing it back in July last year and it still bumps! It’s a big tune and Timaya is certainly making sure there isnt a shortage of world carnival tunes, linking with artist from all of the scenes we love. He’s already had hits with Sean Paul and Machel Montano and now it’s the turn of Destra and Skinny Fabulous to give Sanko a taste of bacchanal. Thumbs up from us on these two, check out more from Timaya in our latest Africa is a Country chart.

Mista Silva x B.A.D. (Best Achieving Don)

The video for Mista Silva’s B.A.D. has just dropped and the tune is a grower, everytime I (Kazabon) hear it, I like it more and more. The dancehall influences are strong in this one and we reckon Mista Silva’s got a bit of a Shabba Ranks steeze going on too. B.A.D. is out on April 5th but you can pre order here.
