Listen to A-Reece’s New Project ‘Reece Effect’

A new project from the prolific rapper and his producer.

A-Reece and his producer MashBeatz dropped a new project this morning. The 11-track project, which is titled Reece Effect, features some members of the The Wrecking Crew, Ex Global and Wordz, alongside IMP THA DON and Krish.


On Reece Effect, Reece and his goons are doing what's now expected of them—making world class rap records. As usual, the rapper reminds you how he's the don of this shit, and that he's living a desirable life (he raps, "We turned ballin' into a habit" on the song "$trange Habit$") and tells a few stories about his love life.

A-Reece has been one of the most prolific rappers to ever come out of South Africa, dropping potent projects consistently for the last five years or so, since 2013, when he dropped his first mixtape #ForeverKing. He's since released Browniez EP (2014), CUTaways EP (2016), Paradise album (2016), From Me To You and Only You album (2017), And I'm Only 21 EP (2018) and L3 (Long Lost Letters), a collaborative album with Wordz and Ecco. He has also dropped countless singles and collaborated with several other artists.

Reece Effect is part of a campaign to promote A-Reece's upcoming show of the same name, which will take place on 6 April. Supporting A-Reece will be Riky Rick, AKA, DJ Maphorisa, The Wrecking Crew, and a few others.

Angélique Kidjo on Africa Day: 'We demand not to be at the mercy of our circumstances anymore.'

We speak to the inimitable Angélique Kidjo who shares some of her refreshing thoughts on Africa Day.

Today is Africa Day and while primarily a commemoration of the formation of the African Union (AU) back in 1963, it has also become an opportunity to unapologetically celebrate Africa while providing a moment for reflection on how far we've come as a continent and as a people.

With this year's theme focused on "Silencing the Guns in the context of the COVID19", there has never been a more important time for deep reflection on our collective present and future as Africans.

And who better to share in that reflection than the legendary and inimitable Beninese musician Angélique Kidjo? A fierce African and artist who has paved the way for many of her contemporaries including Burna Boy, Davido, Thandiswa Mazwai, and several others, the four-time Grammy award winner emphasises the urgent need for unity among Africans. 'It's about time that people start realising that Africa is a continent. I've been saying this my entire career,' she says passionately.

OkayAfrica spoke briefly to Kidjo who shared some of her refreshing thoughts on this year's Africa Day.
