“Whether it is Drake, French Montana or Kendrick Lamar it is hard to deny that African music is on the rise around the world and our unique African artists are defining the trends and tastes of global pop culture. As Africa gets more exposure to the world the bridges between Africans is getting smaller, the new single “Lemme Know” from upcoming South African production duo Saint Danger is evidence of that. Birthed via the internet “Lemme Know is a musical journey which saw Saint Danger (known for their previous work with ChianoSky, Tholwana and Kenya’s Mankind) connect with Nigeria’s next big thing singer/songwriter twins Boybreed. These young talents added Nigerian producer extraordinaire Synx to the mix to produce a “Pon-Pon” inspired pop song guaranteed to make an impact across the continent and the rest of the world.”
Award winning vocalist and South Africa ‘s queen of house ‘ Bucie ’is back with a brand new smash hit single titled ‘ Soz’Uphinde ’ feat the talented Mpumi.
This song is dedicated to all the beautiful women of integrity and power. The song has a very powerful message about women abuse, it encourages women to take back their power and not allow men to belittle them. The title of the song means, you will never do it again which is meant for abusive men out there. One of the powerful lines on the song goes ‘ I am a women and I own my power ’ sang by Mpumi.

Effyzzie Music star Geniuzz releases a new music video for “Single” housed on his “A Slice of Geniuzz” extended play.
The clip was directed by Paul Gambit and is a visual spectacle. “Single” comes after the success of previous singles “Firewood” featuring Falz and “Love and Affection”.
Hitmaker Reinhard Tega AKA Rein Rein Rein Reinhard has followed in the footsteps of legendary producers to feature artistes on a song headlined by himself and “Mr. Ayinde”, his debut single is no different.
Mr. Ayinde is a song about patience and fortitude while hustling to make it to the top all the way from the bottom. The mid tempo track features Nigerian superstars – Koker, Classiq and Loose Kaynon who each add their own unique spice to the gourmet sound.
Koker slays the hook with a vindictive delivery from his street tinged croaky vocals that surprisingly soar quite high enough to replicate a sigh of relief after much needed success finally comes to stay.
Loose brings an strangely calm, reflective and even soulful conveyance of his articulate bars while Classiq seals the deal with his exotic Northern Nigerian accent with his passionate tirade.
Reinhard of course is no wall flower; Mr Ayinde’s beat is an unmistakably Hip-Hop sound built on a trap foundation and kept afloat with hypnotic echoes that sound like the beat box of urban music royalty transformed by his magic fingers and articulate mind into contemporary wavy nobility.
Mr. Ayinde’s story about drive and eventual success is much needed on today’s heavily entitled music scene.
