Video: Reason 'Stay'

[embed width="600"][/embed]


Since hooking up with Tumi Molekane’s Motif Records in 2011, 20-something Jo’burg emcee Reason’s star has burned brightly. He kicked off an impressive year with the free six-track mixtape Audio 3D Prequel — a delicious appetite-wetter for his LP Audio 3D, released last month. That was followed  by a notable cameo appearance at this year’s Cape Town International Jazz Festival and a sublime soundtrack recorded for Sara Blecher’s award-winning film Otelo Burning. In short, it’s been a good year for the young emcee. "Stay," the lead-single off Audio 3D, catalogues the bitterness of a break-up. Best line: “you’re the prettiest nutcase.” Watch the video above.

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
