Listen To Afro B's Hot New Single, 'Shaku Shaku'

The Afrowave hitmaker is back with a new track that's beyond a vibe.

The wait is over.

Afro B has been teasing fans and listeners alike with his follow-up single to "Drogba (Joanna)" lately on social media and it's finally here to dive into—exclusively on OkayAfrica.

"Shaku Shaku," another banger produced by Team Salut, is not your typical song utilizing one of the most popular afrobeat dances of 2018. Afro B effortlessly visualizes what happens when a woman's shaku mesmerizes a man to want to be more than her dance partner for the night.

"I want listeners to get in their zone and element whilst listening to this and feel my authentic African vibe," the Ivorian-British artist tells OkayAfrica. "I didn't want it to be the exact same vibe as 'Drogba'—they're two very different sounding tracks. I also wanted to showcase this biggest dance of this year, the shaku shaku."

Take a listen to "Shaku Shaku" on Spotify or via the lyric video below.
