Afrikan Boy x Seye x The Very Best 'Dear Mama (Going For Gold)'

The latest from Afrikan Boy, 'Dear Mama (Going For Gold)' features Seye and production from The Very Best's Johan Hugo.


Always on the grind recent father Afrikan Boy hit us with another victory lap this week. "Dear Mama (Going For Gold)" sees the hyper-motivated Londoner (via Nigeria) enlist fellow UK/Nigerian electro-popdarling Seye for a Kanye-esque pre-Mother's Day anthem. With the addition of Seye's guitar riff and production courtesy of the Very Best's Johan Hugo, a maturing Afrikan Boy ventures out of his signature afrogrime and into electro-crossover territory. Listen to "Dear Mama" and its house remix below. "Dear Mama" (the single) arrives March 16th via YAM Records.
