Yaw Tog, Stormzy & Kwesi Arthur 'Sore (Remix)'

Young hip-hop star Yaw Tog issued the much-awaited remix of his monster hit single "Sore", this time joining forces with UK rapper Stormzy and Ground Up star Kwesi Arthur. Currently sitting at close to three million views on YouTube, this is the biggest hip-hop song of the season.

Gyakie & Omah Lay 'Forever (Remix)'

The lines continue to fall in place for emerging singer Gyakie, who delivered the official remix to her chart topping single "Forever". This time around she tapped Nigerian singer Omah Lay, giving new life to the still spreading smash hit, now a pan-African affair.

M.anifest 'No Fear' ft. Vic Mensa & Moliy

In one of the hardest records to drop so far this year, rapper M.anifest teamed up with American rapper of Ghanaian descent Vic Mensa and emerging vocalist Moily. Together they deliver the rap joint of rap joints, with M Dot and Vic trading lyrically charged verses, and Moily gluing the mix together with her silky but striking vocals.

Kofi Jamar 'They Don't Know'

Following his mega hit "Ekorso," rapper Kofi Jamar finally came through with his next single. The GADOne Records act went solo on this drill record titled "They Don't Know", once again showcasing his anthem making ability over the 808-heavy Trino production.

E.L 'Wavs'

This month rapper E.L delivered a full length project, his third studio album titled WAVs, an acronym for "West African Vibes." The 13 tracks embody a melting pot of genres by the talented rapper, singer, and producer, and all his talents come into full display both in the booth and on the production boards. With only four guests the album isn't big on features, but the melodic collaboration with rising Nigerian singer Oxlade and the stellar guest verse by Mavin Records rapper Ladipoe are very remarkable entries.

Pappy Kojo 'Logos II'

And another album! This month rapper Pappy Kojo dropped his debut album, a 15-track body of work titled LOGOS II. Featuring a star-studded list of musicians from across Africa and beyond, the likes of Joey B, Sarkodie, Fameye, Adina Thembi, Kofi Kinaata, Kiddblack, Magnom, Kelvynboy, Busiswa, RJZ, Phyno and more all come through on this afrobeats focused multi-genre album, which is definitely worth the listen.

Niro Walter 'Focus'

Accra based singer and songwriter Niro Walter presented his debut project, simply titled Focus. Having 13 songs with no features, Niro took the opportunity to showcase all he has to offer, dishing an abundance of melody in his throaty tenor vocals. With Ksmithmajik, Limber, David Acekeyz and Supa Gaeta behind the production boards, Focus is a balanced project that is well worth your time.

Stonebwoy 'Strength and Hope'

Ghanaian singer Stonebwoy came through as well, taking a break from the dancehall and afrobeats he's best known for to issue a conscious reggae tune titled "Strength and Hope". His rendition of the "Victory Rock Riddim," "Strength and Hope" is one beautiful tune.

Kweku Darlington 'Sika Aba Fie' ft. Yaw Tog & Kweku Flick

On this one budding Ghanaian lyricist Kweku Darlington recruited his fellow drill rappers, Kweku Flick and Yaw Tog on this brand new record titled "Sika Aba Fie." Translating as "money has come home," "Sika Aba Fie" is a fun, singalong drill record.

Medikal ft Kuami Eugene 'Oseiyie' 

Rapper Medikal is another Ghanaian act who dropped a project this month, a 5-track EP titled Amazing Grace. Quickly gaining traction off the project is this cut featuring singer Kuami Eugene, titled "Oseiyie." The Lynx Entertainment superstar blessed the afrobeats single with the "Kuami effect," resulting in a vibrant bop that is likely to be a chart topper in the days to come.

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.
