AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #47: DJ NUNAS

Downlaod an African music mixtape by Mozambique's DJ Nunas.


Mozambique's DJ Nunas, one-half of AM ROOTS production duo & label,  is a veteran selector of diaspora sounds who's built a name from crafting eclectic sets out of hip-hop, soul, ambient electronica, bossa nova, samba and many other genres — always keeping them grounded in the continent — for club audiences in NYC and across the globe.

For this installment of Africa In Your Earbuds, Nunas delivers a fiery excursion into the AfroTech and AfroHouse sounds popularized by the likes of Black Coffee and Culoe de Song. Nunas wrote us that his mix is "inspired by [his] time spent living in Haiti and childhood influenced by African music." He told us,

I grew up in Maputo, Mozambique where the pop music of my generation is heavily influenced by Southern African music mostly played in three of the major cities such as Luanda, Johannesburg and Maputo.

Wizkid Spoils Fans By Dropping the Music Video For 'No Stress'

Oh, you thought he was done for the day?

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

It's hard not to move to the track on its own, and now we have a plethora of beautiful African women to virtually jam out with. The release of the second single off the high anticipated MIL album comes as Wizkid toyed with fans by simply tweeting "No Stress."

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.

Watch the music video for "No Stress" by Wizkid below.
