Nigerian Dancehall Meets South African Hip-Hop In AKA & Patoranking's New Video
Here's "Special Fi Mi," a new dance floor jam from South African star AKA and Nigeria’s Patoranking.
“Special Fi Mi” (or “Special For Me”) catches AKA and Patoranking in a romantic mood as they celebrate their infatuation with a newly found romance.
The single, produced by Nigerian beat maker Gospel, splices in afrobeat saxophones—this one reminds us of Femi Kuti’s sax in “Jaiye Jaiye”—and afrobeats rhythms as AKA and Patoranking serenade their "queens."

AKA, the South African rapper poised to take over the world, has been making quite a few international collaborations this past year—most recently with Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz and Cameroon’s Stanley Enow.
It’s a pretty seamless blend of South African hip-hop and Nigerian dancehall, ripe for your weekend unwinding.
