Ghana's Gyakie shares the music video for her latest single, "Something." The sultry new clip. is a nice pairing to the silky synths and afro-fusion beat work of the tune. It's an all-Ghana affair as the visuals were shot in Accra by Ghanaian cinematographer Andy Madjitey. Check it out above.
Mr Eazi 'Legalize (Acoustic) ft. Michael Brun
Nigeria's Mr Eazi connected with Haitian producer/DJ Michael Brun for a stripped-down acoustic version of his latest single "Legalize," an ode to his fiancé Temi Otedola. The two take the track to its sentimental core with just Eazi's voice and an acoustic guitar.
Flvme 'Let Me Down'
South African rapper Flvme comes through with his head-bopping first single of 2022. In "Let Me Down" he laments a past partner, while recognizing how they shaped his current self. “Accepting everything for what it is and understanding that I have to go through a lot in order to grow .. overall it’s just about finding peace within myself,” he mentions about the song.
Asari Music 'Like Dat'
Atlanta-based, Ghana-born Asari Music shares a total earworm with her single "Like Dat," which will pull you in with its addictive refrain. The track is built on glassy synthesizers chords and a minimal beat but the real star is Asari's staccato delivery.
