Listen to King Perryy's New Single 'My Darlina'

King Perryy delivers a crisp and soulful Afrobeat track with plenty of bounce as his first official single of the year.

King Perryy has just dropped his first official single of the year titled "My Darlina".

The track is a crisp and soulful Afrobeat track with plenty of bounce—the perfect addition to that (hopefully growing) Valentine's Day playlist.


This year holds a lot of promise for Afro-dancehall musician King Perryy. The Nigerian artist's highly anticipated single "My Darlina" comes ahead of his Citizen of The World EP which is set to be released soon.

A mid-tempo bop produced by Blaise Beatz, the track explores the artist's innermost feelings with regards to a particular love interest while also showing off his softer side with casual bravado coupled with flirty wordplay. The laid-back beat has just enough bounce to get you onto the dance floor (or the bedroom) and vibing to the infectious rhythm.

King Perryy's popularity is on the rise with fans responding favourably to his self-created genre which he refers to as "Continental Sound". Currently signed to DM Records, the artist has released several hits thus far including "Murder" featuring Teni, "Eastern Baby", "Work n' Grind" and "Man on Duty" featuring Timaya.

With a growing fanbase and a growing catalogue of just really dope music, King Perryy is definitely one to watch this year—bet!

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.
