FOKN Bois Return With New Single 'Wo Nim Mi' Featuring Medikal

The lead single from their upcoming EP, Afrobeats LOL.

FOKN Bois are back.

The Ghanaian duo of Wanlov the Kubolor and M3NSA are readying the release of their new EP, Afrobeats LOL. We're told the tongue-in-cheek title is the guys making fun of themselves—they said they'd never make an afrobeats album but they've ended up making a very good one.

Afrobeats LOL is is set to featuring collaborations with the likes of Mr. Eazi, Sister Deborah, Dex Kwasi and Gyedu Blay Ambolley.

Today we're premiering the release's lead single "Wo Nim Mi," featuring Ghanaian rapper Medikal.

Watch the new music video for "Still Dey Inside," shot across Ghana and Hungary.

M3NSA comes through with the new video for "SDI," a head-nodding single that sees him connecting with fellow Ghanaian Amaarae.

The new track, which was co-produced by Andras Weil, sees the FOKN Bois and Red Red member addressing how he refuses to get caught up in the pressures of expectations, while the buzzing Amaarae delivers a knockout verse of her own.

The new music video for "SDI," which we're premiering today, follows M3NSA as he rides a vintage convertible across the Hungarian countryside and rides bikes with Amaarae in Accra's suburbs.
