Lectrik’s first single in 2019 is a stark contrast to the predominantly dark topic his debut EP “Nightlife” holds. The Single is a bright, clear and bold declaration of attraction to the Rapper/Singer’s love interest & it features the special combination of vocals of the afro eccentric Daddy 99 & Omagz’s layered, ever soothing voice.

It’s a lot of fun to see these different artistes unite on an instrumental, and even if they might not agree on their separate genres, they definitely do on this one. And to the special girl they’re all after.

"Midnight" was produced, mixed & mastered by LordKnowz. Listen Up!

Dancehall artist, Patoranking has just put out his anticipated sophomore album, ‘Wilmer’. The 12-track project is a follow-up to his 2016 debut, ‘God Over Everything’, and is named after the singer’s daughter who also features in the album’s cover art.

While the increased global fanfare around Nigerian music tends to centre more on the country’s more talked about A-list acts, Patoranking’s crossover efforts, which includes sold-out performances across Europe and Africa, places the singer as an integral dark horse in Afropop’s continued rise. ‘Wilmer’s diverse guest list, featuring pan-African collaborations with Busiswa and Nyanshiki, as well as international assistance from Bera and Donae’o, is a marker of Patoranking’s ambition to move to the next level of crossover success.

You can listen to 'Wilmer' below.

Runtown just put out his long-awaited Tradition EP a week before its scheduled release date. The 6-song project is coming three years after his late 2015 debut album, ‘Ghetto University’. Although the singer had been teasing a new project since February last year, he was limited to releasing only a handful of stellar singles by a public legal tussle with the boss of his former label, Eric Manny.

Now fully independent, and putting out music under his Soundgod imprint, Runtown intends on using his autonomy as a springboard into the next level of his career, hoping to partake in the global attention Afropop has enjoyed lately. Last year, Runtown’s “No Permission” collaboration with Nasty C provided proof of Afropop’s evolution, as well as his ability to blend Nigerian music sensibilities with western soundscapes. ‘Tradition’ follows the same winning confluence formula, featuring a sole guest verse from South-east London rapper, Fekky on the pre-release single, “Unleash”, with production from premier Afropop producers, Del B and Spellz.

You can listen to Tradition below and buy here.

Hamzaa’s enchanting performance on Odunsi’s “Mine”, as well as “Take Me There” off ‘Rare’ helped capture the fancy of Nigerian music enthusiasts. Her 2018 project debut, ‘First Signs Of Me‘ also established her endearing brand of emotive soulful pop music, and she builds on that reputation with her new single, “London”, her major label debut.

Dedicated to the city she calls home, the newly-minted Parlophone records signee reminisces on her more peaceful memories of London. “Stay Out Late At Night Without A Worry, Those Were The Days I Felt Safe, Young And Free”, Hamzaa sings over production comprising radiant piano keys, thumping bass and tribal drums. While she expresses worries about the current state of the city, her powerful vocals beam with optimism throughout the song, singing “I Will Always Find Love In My Heart For London” on the pre-chorus.

For the song’s accompanying video, frames of Hamzaa performing the song alone in a cozy bedroom, then alongside her friends. Quick shots of people moving around the city are also interspersed, representing the song’s celebration of joy and togetherness.

Watch the video for Hamzaa’s “London” below.

The historic Felabration Music Festival, conceived by Yeni Kuti, daughter of the African music icon and legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, to commemorate his life and celebrate his legacy is coming to the UK on Friday, August 30, spearheaded by Fela’s daughter Shalewa Kuti, and supported by DLA World.

With music being an integral aspect of African culture, Felabration is one of the longest standing, most attended and groundbreaking music festivals in Nigeria, staging over 150 of the best African Artists over a one-week extravaganza at the New Afrika Shrine in Lagos, Nigeria.

Before patenting Afrobeat, Fela spent an important part of his formative years in the UK, schooling at the Trinity School of Music in London, as well forming and playing with his very first band, Koola Lobitos. Felabration UK is apt, not just for being integral to Fela’s musical beginnings, but also for helping to lay the groundwork for Afropop’s global rise in recent years—his Glastonbury headlining set from 1984 remains a highlight for African music.

Felabration UK will feature some of the biggest African music stars on its stage and is set to offer a show-stopping experience, including décor recreating the ambience of the New Afrika Shrine in Lagos, as well as on-screen visuals and cultural dances. Advanced tickets are available via SHOOBS and AXS.
