Kobi Onyame And Show N Prove Share 'Yo Yo Tinz'

Ghanaian/UK rapper Kobi Onyame shares "Yo Yo Tinz," the new single off his as-yet-untitled album due later in 2015.

Ghana-born, Glasgow-based rapper Kobi Onyame delivers a bumping dance rap tune with "Yo Yo Tinz," the new single off his as-yet-untitled album due later this year. Crafted by Edinburgh hip-hop producer Show N Prove, the tingly tune features Onyame delivering frenetic rhymes over heavy drums, fuzzy bass lines, and speeding electronics. The track, which was recorded at London's Red Bull Studios, is both claustrophobic and anthemic, playing like an anxious version of a booming club song. Listen to Kobi Onyame and Show N Prove's "Yo Yo Tinz" below and check out a short behind-the-scenes video. For more from Kobi Onyame, revisit his slow-burning heartache video for "Call Out My Name" from last year.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
