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.
