On this week’s edition of Psst! New Stuff, we go from Nigeria to Mozambique, Congo to Ghana, and a worthy stop over in South Africa. The playlist is now updated with our top picks from the fresh releases across the continent.
Goodgirla LA – Bando (NG)
Music for the rebellious youths no doubt! GGLA wants you to know that girls have now blown, without promo—an update on the popular line in her hit song ‘Bless me’. I love the energy with which she delivers the lyrics, and definitely the whole vibe! It’s not every day that you see a female artiste come with a song as hard as this.
Rema – Bounce (NG)
Nothing could have prepared us for this one, not even the IG live video of Rema hinting his fans about his jam with Don Jazzy. In fact, there was no announcement (lol) We just woke up to new music from Rema! This song is a representation of how much Rema’s sound has evolved.
Ranks – Different ft. Emtee, Riky Rick (SA)
‘Either you love me or leave me alone!’ That’s that. The focus is clear and the music to go with it, even more crisp classic Mzansi hip-hop for some vibe with no negative energy.
Jay Bhad – Go Get (GH)
Classic right? Go Get is a hard hitting drill tune where Ghanaian rapper Jay Bahd lays out his main priority; to get the bread! The paper! The bag! everyday, with his gang! The GH drill scene has been on fire now for about a year and it seems like it’s only the beginning!
Asake – Mr Money Remix ft. Peruzzi, Zlatan Ibile (NG)
How a freestyle became a hit song, we’ll discuss that some other day. Right now, let’s focus on this remix! Zlatan ayeeee! Peruzzi? killed it! The melodies he infused in the chorus, Zlatan’s verse, they didn’t really have to spazz this way but we are here for it.
Zinoleesky – Kilofeshe Remix ft. Mayorkun, Busiswah (NG)
For the remake of his hit single, Zinolessky goes with the classic NG & SA mix.
Mayorkun’s verse sounds exactly like the snippet shared on social media a few weeks ago. Fire! However, the Jury is still out on Busiswah’s verse though, let me know what you think? Might be one that has to grow on you…
Skillz 8Figure – Like Dat ft. Psycho YP
Off his forthcoming album titled ‘After Dark’, Skillz 8Figure drops new single titled Like Dat featuring YP and they both sing with braggadocio about their lifestyles.
Dwalak – Amor É Assim ft. Mark Exodus (MZ)
Amor É Assim means ‘Love is like this’. You might not understand what he’s saying, but this is an interesting love song. The melodies and sensuality in the delivery will probably get you in your feelings.
Shatta Wale – Dem Dead (GH)
‘Rise yuh ting dem Long Gone’… Shatta Wale wants you to go fih yuh ting and mark your territory, with full heat. Lol! Basically go get what’s yours!!!
Afrikan Roots – uYanginika ft. Dj Bucks (SA)
I’ve only just discovered Afrikan Roots’ music and uYanginika is an amazing Electronic Dance song. You would love it too.
Kizz Daniel – Flex (NG)
Kizz Daniel is yet to miss the mark as far as I am concerned. The bass guitar in the background, you can’t miss that. The trumpets! This is pure Afrobeats. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
