Swizz Beatz Jumps On MC Galaxy’s Viral Dance Hit 'Sekem'

Star producer Swizz Beatz remixes Nigerian comedian and artist MC Galaxy's huge 2014 dance hit 'Sekem.'


MC Galaxy scored himself a huge hit and viral dance move with 2014’s “Sekem.” The Nigerian comedian and musician now gets an assist on a remix of the track from none other than Swizz Beatz, who’s been reportedly helping record MC Galaxy’s second album.

The star New York producer adds some of his signature flavor to the single, singing “Africa let’s go” and shouting out cities around the globe to get down and do the Sekem. Swizz Beatz has been one-upping new African artists lately, we’ve previously seen him and wife Alicia keys endorse Wizkid and Skales’ songs on social media, as well as shout out Okayafrica family Underdog and 2manysiblings.

Swizz Beatz and MC Galaxy will be dropping a music video for the “Sekem” remix soon. The one question we’re all wondering now is: will Swizz break out the famous dance step?

Global vibes always ⚡️@mcgalaxymcg SEKEM⚡️

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
