Listen to DJ Supernova’s Mashup of “Nalingi” by Manu WorldStar and Pharrell’s “Number One”

Is Nalingi really number one?

DJ Supernova is on a roll with these mashups. Right after mashing up AKA and Kiddominant's "Fela In Versace" with Lupe Fiasco's "Kick Push" last week, the DJ just dropped another unlikely combination of songs.


"Nalingi," Manu WorldStar's breakout pop crossover single was huge last year. The song, which combined pop and Afrobeats, resonated with many fans across the continent.

Listen to the mashup below, and decide for yourself.
