Enamel Releases New Single 'Gang' and Accompanying Music Video

The smooth track is the Afropop newcomer's follow-up to his largely successful debut single 'Pokish'.

Rising Afropop artist Enamel has dropped a new track titled "Gang" as well as the accompanying visuals.

The new track is a follow-up to his 2019 debut single "Pokish" featuring Galaybanton and was produced by Kiddominant.


"Gang" is a mid-tempo track with an admittedly infectious beat—the hallmark of any good Afropop or Afrobeats hit. The intermittent use of brass instrumentals in the background gives the song an overall laid-back feel which translates well in the music video.

Listen to Gang on Apple Music and Spotify.

Reminiscent of Wizkid and Blaq Jerzee's music video for "Arizona", the visuals dart between both Enamel and Galaybanton riding quad bikes in a desert area to doing their thing in an alleyway of sorts amid shots of dancing women. It's a good follow-up to his debut track and Enamel continues to show his promise as a rising star.

The Ibadan-born artist, real name Hakim Giwa, is now based in Johannesburg, South Africa and is signed with the record label More Coke Everyday.

Enamel is currently working on an EP and describes his journey with music thus far by saying, "I am Inspired and motivated by the things around me, all the frowns and smiles, ups and downs and everything in general about life. I decided to share my story and everything I see in the best way I can." He adds that, "Africa is my root, 23402 is my city and I rep every living soul on earth, no discrimination, no colour, no race.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
