Buffalo Souljah Drops the Star-Studded Zim Dancehall EP, ‘Born Again’

South African-based Zimbabwean dancehall artist Buffalo Souljah's EP is here.

South African-based Zimbabwean dancehall artist Buffalo Souljah has been on the grind. In recent years, he's worked with the likes of Nyla (Brick and Lace), AKA, and DJ Waxxy, among others.

The prolific artist has now released his solo EP, Born Again, and it’s a total jump.

His production choices straddle dancehall, hip-hop and pop, while the project's tied together by Buffalo Souljah's consistent vocals.

The 11-track EP features the cream of the crop of South African hip-hop—the likes of Ab Crazy, Yung Swiss, Frank Casino, Nadia Nakai and Gemini Major. His Zimbabwean countryman, the king of Zim dancehall, Winky D and Zambia’s DJ Cosmo also make an appearance.

Be it over fast-paced dancehall drum patterns or heavy 808 drums and bass lines, Buffalo Souljah consistently impresses with his auto-tuned vocals, and his guests give the project variety.

Most of the production on Born Again is handled by gTbeats, Louis M Songz, Glo, Ghost and, of course, Gemini Major.

The EP features Buffalo Souljah and Winky D’s video single “Rugare,” which you can watch above.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
