Maleek Berry steps in front of the microphone for Kontrol and smashes it. It’s good to see producers step out in afropop more and more. Lets build this genre more and more.

If you have been following us you know we are fans of Runtown, he’s a singer, songwriter and producer and has been showcasing different styles in true world carnival style on his album Ghetto University. Recently he has been on an afrosoca vibe working with Machel Montano on the Bend Down Pause Remix and featuring on the remix of Olatunji’s Oh Yay. His latest tune Lagos to Kampala which features HDD favourite Wizkid and has more of an afropop feel. With Maleek Berry on the production we totally approve of this trio doing things together if it results in tunes like this.
We have been following Moelogo since he dropped The Baddest (featuring Giggs) and his latest single Do You love Me hits all the right notes for us, we think he kills it on this laid back afrobeats vibe that we have been enjoying of late – other tunes that fall in to this category for us are Leriq and Wizkid’s Say You Love Me and Burna Boy’s Soke. We have been playing Do you love me on our Radar Radio shows lately and its nice to see it get a video treatment which is not your average loved up video! Check it out above and support the single here.
Maleek Berry is a don. Such a great producer and he may have coaxed out another great hit from Wande Coal. Maleek Berry is london based and should be working with some uk girl bands stat. This is pure pop goodness right here.
Seriously Wizkid’s ability to nail almost every single one of his appearances is crazy. He is probably averaging a new track every two weeks and more than often they are a hit. This one produced by Maleek Berry (Uk based) is rolling, organ led track with burrows itself into your head. The track is for Saeon but i could probably leave her out of it. That’s not to say that she is bad, in fact the more i play it the better she is but she is definitely playing it straight allows Wizkid to steal the show. Apparently she is a very talented songwriter.
Maleek Berry is a name that we should all get familiar with. The producer based out of London seems to have given afro -pop a sheen that it missed, That’s not to say that it wasn’t good before but he is like The Dream of the scene right now giving rough and the edges pop stars a little bit more sheen. I get this vibe with Wande Coal’s new track My Way. Tell me those drums on the intro don’t remind you of something that Rihanna could hop on. To be honest i have always thought that Afro Pop has the same vibe that pop used to have, maybe this song can become a staple on more than 1xtra?
