Blackmagic x Levelz


There is something amazing about simple Naija afropop and this track by Blackmagic is another one. Simple braggadocious rhymes and a thick bay area slap by Kid Konnect. So so good.

HDD x Radar Radio August 13th

Another two hour show on Radar Radio packed full of our favourite tunes of the moment spanning dancehall, soca, afrobeats, hip hop and more.

Tracklist below Continue reading

Frenchie x Cele (Feat. Naira Marley)

We are big champions of Naira Marley here and when we saw him pop up on Congoloese artist Frenchie we were curious. Cele leans away from Naira’s typical trap or dancehall sound and is more congolese influenced afropop house. Boy does he nail it here, switching flows and going with Yoruba. It’s a killer combo between the 2 guys and hopefully they will do some more down the line as well.

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.
