The multi-award winning DJ has created an upbeat, classical house single with "Ebabayo". The song is hypnotic and Nokwazi's vocals drive the rhythmic beat which is treated with drums and distinctive piano keys. Prince Kaybee is clearly exploring the amapiano genre with this latest track but manages to keep to his clean house production style. "Ebabayo" has reportedly been described by Prince Kaybee's record label as a "high-octane" track that's sure to strike out some new dances.

Prince Kaybee is known for his master collaborations that produce hits and The 4th Republic is no different. The heavily stacked 22-track album features some of South Africa's best vocalist and house DJs. Lady Zamar, Ami Faku, King Monada, Black Motion, Shimza, Masuda, Kaylow, and LeboTheGreat are just a few of the artists music fans can look forward to hearing on the album.

The lead single "Uwrongo", which dropped early in 2020, reportedly featured on former US President Barack Obama's "Favourite Songs Of 2020" and Time Magazine's coveted "10 Best Songs of 2020" list. The hit single "Uwrongo" was Prince Kaybee's dream collaboration with house heavyweights Shimza and Black Motion as well as Xhosa songstress Ami Faku.

"Ebabayo" is sure to keep Prince Kaybee's trail blazing. The 4th Republic will officially be released on the 5th of March.

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.
