Listen to Sound Sultan's New Album '8th Wondah'

The 17-track album features 2Baba, Wizkid, Teni, Falz, Mr Real and several others.

Sound Sultan recently dropped his 8th studio album titled 8th Wondah.

The 17-track album is the follow-up to his 2016 album titled "Out of the Box" and features fellow Nigerian artists 2Baba, Wizkid, Teni, Falz, Mr Real, Olu Maintai, Peruzzi, Small Doctor and Johnny Drille.


8th Wondah starts off with a hip-hop leaning track titled "Something Like This" which then moves on to "Incase" featuring Falz. The track sounds like a fusion between hip-hop and Afrobeats with distinct synthesised sounds. Sound Sultan recruits Wizkid and 2Baba on "Ghesomo", an Afrobeats number with a laidback and mid-tempo rhythm. The pace switches up in "Odo", a vibrant track with just the right amount of bounce, featuring Teni, Mr Real and Olu Maintain. Johnny Drille hops onto "Area", a romantic bop which sees the duo singing about love interests and heartbreak.

Sound Sultan features five additional bonus tracks including "Jungle", "Tonop", "Superwoman", "Ghetto Love" and "Show Me Road".

8th Wondah is the artist's first official body of work for this year and it not only showcases his talent but documents his evolving sound and artistry.

In times of conflict and war, school-aged children could have their futures defined by whether or not they can access education amid ongoing violence.

Ethiopia's northern region of Tigray is in the midst of a war that has impacted millions of lives and affected neighboring regions, Amhara and Afar. The war — which has forced citizens to flee, has tipped the region into famine, and has barricaded humanitarian aid from reaching the most vulnerable — has now been going on for about 11 months.

As the beginning of the school season draws nearer, safely reopening schools, making education accessible, and protecting children from the impacts of violence in the affected regions is a priority for aid agencies.

"As schools prepare to reopen in early October in most parts of the country, in Tigray and the bordering regions of Afar and Amhara, where the conflict has expanded, education remains at a standstill," Director of Education Cannot Wait, Yasmine Sherif, told Global Citizen.
