Watch P-Square and Don Jazzy's comical, South African-shot video for "Collabo."


Nigerian superstar duo P-Square share the new visuals for "Collabo," their guitar-laced joint single alongside Mavin Records‘ CEO/producer Don Jazzy. The crew travelled to the South African coast to shoot the playful Clarence Peters-directed music video, which sees each of the artists getting caught daydreaming about an office romance. The track, which can be found on P-Square's Double Trouble LP from last year, features the twins (Peter and Paul Okoye) and Don Jazzy dropping Portuguese lines, as well as references to Cristiano Ronaldo and Mavin label star Tiwa Savage’s hit “Eminado” over an Oscar-produced beat. For more from the album check out P-Square's T.I.-featuring video for “Ejeajo,” as well as their underground warehouse visuals for "Shekini." Watch P-Square and Don Jazzy's SA-shot music video for "Collabo" below.

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
