Audio: Redbull Mixtape Vol. 1 - Free Download


It turns out Red Bull does more than produce magic manic water, kooky line-drawn commercials, and opportunities for folks to plunge into freezing water. Recently Red Bull put UK producer Toddla T in a studio with 9 other UK artist including Ghanian MC Kobi Onyami and waited for the magic to happen. Well the results are in and the mixtape is well worth the download. To be fair it’s a free download, but I’d have no problem paying for any of these tracks, especially “Explain Yourself” ft. Cleo Sol. Kobi is also a pretty formidable rapper, and Toddla T’s production has me on the search for anything else he’s ever made.  And to top it off, I pretty much fell in love with Cleo Sol after seeing her on the mixtape’s trailer (above). Also the final track “I Don’t Believe” by ToyFace is digitized, angelic, and the very definition of mellow. The mixtape features a pretty diverse range of songs, but Toddla T pulls them all together to make one enjoyable experience.  Tracklist after the jump.

If you like what you hear of Kobi Onyami, be sure to check out his album Green Green Grasses, available on iTunes.

After successfully commentating at the recent Basketball Africa League held in Kigali, award-winning sports journalist and analyst Usher Komughisha is dead set on pursuing a new challenge.

Most times, when we think of sports industry personalities, especially in Africa, the first name that springs to mind is usually that of a male. Women, however, are increasingly breaking barriers and taking up their rightful positions everywhere in society. And it's so inspiring to watch!

Usher Komugisha continues to defy the odds, and she is rising to become a household name in the sports industry in Africa. If you followed the inaugural Basketball Africa League (BAL) competition that kicked off on May 16, 2021 in Kigali, Rwanda, then you definitely know who we are talking about. With great power, control and a unique voice, Usher commanded the attention of basketball lovers in the 215 countries it was broadcasted to.

Usher's bubbly personality, which shone through when I first contacted her telephonically, brought warmth, a sense of comfort and for a minute it felt like we'd been friends for eternity. Below, she lets us into her sport-filled world...
