Song of the Summer alert. Timaya rides this simple afropop meets 90′s dancehall vibe in proper singjay style. The xylophone touches are what make you keep coming back to this gem.

There’s something quite nice about this dancehall influenced Afropop tune from Ketchup. The tune features EME’s Banky W whose verse reminds us a little of Gyptian’s Wine Slow. This one could be a summer bubbler!
So after afropop Busy is now on something that wouldn’t sound out of place in a Neptunes set. Busy is just knocking these out of the park at the moment. Love the Lady Saw shout out in it as well.
I’ll let you in to a secret, most Nigerian artists aren’t looking to brand new dancehall artists for collabs or inspiration. Instead they are looking to artists that they either see on MTV or music heard at functions. When i first saw this and it’s photoshopped cover i thought it would be a straight cover of the classic. Instead it’s Diana King and Praiz going over an afropop beat and crafting a gospel infused banger. Damn it she even busts out some Pidgeon at the end.
