MUSIC: VIDEOS

Top five current tunes from amazing artist who just happen to be African.

Wanlov the Kubolor – Never Go Change

Corruption is global and Wanlov presents it so simply and purely in this track accompanied by a black and white video. The song is reminiscent of his single Human, heartfelt music with meaning.

Fantasma – Cat and Mouse

The first time I heard this song I was convinced that I had lost it …. its rare to hear ‘Kiswahili Sanifu’ Pure Kiswahili in music, mostly when you were not anticipating it. The single is accompanied by a video of young  ballet dancers who dance within townships, Spoek main aim was to showcase the benefits new skills extended to children living within townships.

Stonebwoy ft DJ Juls – Rudeboi Love

Purely on the strength of the production the next lines can be filled with an in-depth analysis and breakdown of elements that can be picked up but this has to be one of the best collaborations so far in the year, relaxed of the strength of this track Stonebwoy can take the BET INT award not many people within Afrobeats seek to merge a few genres some dub reggae elements shine through.

Burna Boy – Sonke

Anyone who knows me, knows that language is a tool that I greatly admire within music and Burna Boy has also found ways of adding his own swag (that word has been dying out) to his music Sonke does not disappoint, this is definitely one track that will not miss spin on decks this summer.

M.anifest – Forget Dem

Just felt it was nice to share this visual recently M.anifest has realised some fantastic videos but this one stood out mainly because my ultimate #MCM features and I wasn’t expecting it but it was a nice surprise.

Sharing is caring who are you jamming to at the moment.

Azekel – New Romance

Azekel is part of a unique group in the music industry the soulful male artist sits side to side with the likes of Kwabs, Angel and a recent addition, Raheem singer/songwriters who offer depth and pure artistry, his first video till today tops my favourite visual film and this is his latest release.

Sarkodie ft Castro – Adonai

Anyone who knows me has had to endure constant replays of this song, aside from Sarkodie being the only African rapper who delivers unique songs and has curved out a niche that leaves others eating dust, Catro’s feature adds volumes and depth to the deliverance and overall message  of the song. The video does lack great direction although working to tell of the tries and tribulations faced it mimic Kendricks Lamar “Bitch Don’t Kill My Video” within wardrobe choices.

FKA Twigs -Two Weeks 

Directed by Nabil Elderkin the super photographer and music video director that has for many years created the videos that match some of our favourite artists song, last year after reading and interesting interview I was opened up to his cleaver and slick tactics that introduced the world to both his talents and also Kanye West, having heard of the buzz of a raising star in both his and Kanye’s hometown Chicago Nabil purcharced Kanye’s domain name of which his management reached out to purchase from him, long story short this lead to him taking West’s most recognised images with LV bags and directing a number of his videos. This is his latest masterpiece and it speaks for itself drawing most notably from ‘Queen of the Dame’ staring Aaliyah and West’s ‘Power’ Nabil presents visuals that stick true to FKA Twings strong and sensual style.
