Watch Joey B's New Music Video For 'No Waste Time' Feat. Boj

PREMIERE: Head to the southeast coast of Ghana in this new music video from buzzing Ghanaian act Joey B featuring Boj.

Joey B comes through with the new music video and single for "No Waste Time," his collaboration with Boj of DRB LasGidi.

"No Waste Time" sees Joey B—who's track "Stables" alongside La Même Gang was one of The Best Ghanaian Songs of 2018—connecting with Nigeria's Boj over a head-nodding mid-tempo beat from Altra Nova.

"'No Waste Time' was a fast collaboration that happened while BOJ and I were looking to work for the second time. We 'no waste time' (haha)," Joey B tells OkayAfrica. "Our styles are quite similar so it was a breeze, with production by the phenomenal Altra Nova."


The single's new music video, which we're premiering here today, follows both artists to Ada, in the southeast coast of Ghana, through a sun-filled day and night at the beach. The video was created by Youngtrepreneurs, a non-profit organization that provides workshops and job opportunities to young creators in Ghana.

"Director RQA, an emerging director, was selected to shoot the video through a filmmaking workshop by Youngtrepreneurs, an initiative started by Scilla Owusu, a young Ghanaian creative with a passion for pushing pop culture and art," Joey B continues.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

Jabulani Tsambo, popularly known by his alias HHP, was a pivotal part of South African hip-hop. Renowned for trailblazing the motswako sub-genre in the early 2000s, the rapper sadly passed away on October 24th, 2018 after a long and much publicised bout with depression.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
