Vanessa Mdee Ft. Rayvanny 'BADO'

Tanzania's pop princess Vanessa Mdee dropped a new banger this month featuring WCB Wasafi artist, Rayvanny. The song is called "Bado" and it's an absolute scorcher and its definitely going to be popular in the club circuits on this side of the continent.

Khaligraph Jones x Lamaz Span K.O.B 'Me Siogopi'

Popular Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones continues his reign over the Kenyan rap scene with a new one titled "Me Siogopi" (translates to "I am not afraid"). With his aggressive delivery and the track's hard-hitting beat, the message is passed on quite clearly that Khaligraph doesn't want to be messed with.

Harmonize 'Uno'

WCB Wasafi superstar Harmonize did not disappoint with his newest banger "Uno" which dropped just last week. The track is the first single under Harmonize's new imprint Konde Music Worldwide and it's steadily rising to the top of the charts.

Rayvanny Ft Mayorkun 'GimmiDat'

Rayvanny is one of the most consistent stars out of East Africa. This month he teamed up with Nigerian heavyweight Mayorkun for "Gimmidat," a dance-hall tinged feel-good song for the ladies. This is certainly a collaboration we needed from these two fast-rising superstars.

Grenade 'AMEN'

Fast-rising Ugandan star Grenade dropped a catchy new single "Amen" this month. The song has a sweet dance-hall tinged vibe that is quite easy on the ears.

Boutross 'Bank' Feat. Barak Jacuzzi 

Rising Kenyan emcee Boutross teamed up with Barak Jacuzzi this month for "Bank," a catchy trap banger that talks about hustling and getting big bags.
