Yaw Tog & Bad Boy Timz 'Azul'
Asakaa posterboy Yaw Tog also dropped a brand new single. Teaming up with Bad Boy Timz, the rapper tries his hand at amapiano for the first time on “Azul.” With the help of the Nigerian afrobeats hitmaker the duo deliver a solid dance tune, and we get a chance to see TOG show off his singing chops on this potential bottle-popping anthem.
Fameye 'Don’t Worry Freestyle'
Fameye also returned with his first single of the year, titled “Don’t Worry," a laid back, mid-tempo afrobeats tune coming in at below three minutes. Going by how it sounds it’s very safe to say Fameye has another hit on his hands.

Kofi Jamar 'Balling'
Rapper Kofi Jamar dropped the official music video to “Balling”, a song off his 2021 EP Appetite for Destruction. “Balling” is a 90’s inspired hip-hop record, and Kofi Jamar takes us back to the beloved era complete with the colorful fits, the banging boomboxes, and the nostalgic dance steps.
Twitch 4Eva 'Moko'
