Ice Prince x AKA 'N Word Remix'

Ice Prince teams up with South Africa's AKA on a massive remix for his Don Jazzy-produced, trap-influenced “N Word.”


Ice Prince's second album Fire Of Zamani has received steady critical acclaim and commercial success since its release back in October offf the back of his singles "Aboki," "I Swear," "Jambo" and "Whiskey." Mr. Zamani gives the Don Jazzy-produced, trap-influenced “N-Word” the remix treatment by linking up with South Africa's AKA for a massive South-meets-West banger. AKA himself has an album that's currently making waves in Mzansi. The "N-Word Remix" isn't the first time the two MC friends have shared the mic. Both contributed verses to the pan-African remix for Motswako originator Khuli Chana’s "Tswa Daar."

It's great to see the continued trend of African artists collaborating across borders. 2014 has already seen a steady stream of excellent pan-African collaborations, such as Nigeria’s Davido featuring SA’s Mafikizolo on "Tchelete," Ghana’s M.anifest recruiting South Afican pantsula pioneer HHP on "Jigah" and Tanzania’s Diamond teaming up with Davido for the "Number One Remix." Mr. Zamani previously got in on the act with his Nigeria-meets-Ghana "Shots On Shots" track with Sarkodie, as well as his featured spots on tracks for South African artists Liquideep and L-Tido. We're looking forward to more of these collaborations in 2014 and beyond. Africa Stand up! For now turn up your speakers for Ice Prince and AKA's "N-Word Remix" (produced by both Don Jazzy and Chopstix), the fifth video single to come off Fire Of Zamani. Look out for cameos from Don Jazzy, Da L.E.S, Dr Sid, Sarkodie, Endia, Yung L, Chopstix, DJ Caise, Peju A, Bizzle Osikoya, and TMXO. Something tells us this one was filmed during the weekend of the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs)...

After successfully commentating at the recent Basketball Africa League held in Kigali, award-winning sports journalist and analyst Usher Komughisha is dead set on pursuing a new challenge.

Most times, when we think of sports industry personalities, especially in Africa, the first name that springs to mind is usually that of a male. Women, however, are increasingly breaking barriers and taking up their rightful positions everywhere in society. And it's so inspiring to watch!
