Shane Eagle Will Be Joining Bas On His ‘Milky Way’ Tour

The South African rapper is going on tour with Dreamville's Bas.

South African rapper Shane Eagle is part of Bas' Milky Way Tour. The tour will have stops in the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, France and more.

The South African MC isn't the only artist listed as a special guest on the Dreamville MC's tour. Audio Push and Lute will also be tagging along.


Shane will perform in most of the tour's stops, including Paris, Liege, Cologne, Prague, Warsaw, Berlin and Amsterdam.

The South African MC clearly doesn't know what the meaning of sleep is. He wrapped up his Yellow Tour in December last year, which had a few stops including Joburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

Towards the end of last year, he dropped a gem of an EP, Never Grow Up, which is still on high rotation in these parts. Be sure to pick up a copy here, if you still haven't.

There's clearly something brewing between Shane Eagle and the Dreamville clique. When Bas was in South Africa for a few shows last year, Shane joined the rapper as a special guest.

The last time we spoke to Shane Eagle was when he had just released his debut album Yellow in 2017. The MC hinted on taking his extremely personal rhymes and hazy music worldwide, and he clearly didn't tell a lie.

Below is the full list of the Milky Way Tour dates.

Interview

Adekunle Gold Is Living His Best Life

We speak to the Nigerian star about how marriage and fatherhood have led him to find both newfound happiness and newfound freedom as an artist.

''I'm having the time of my life,'' says Adekunle Gold over a Zoom call while seated in his office in Lagos. ''I'm making songs that are so true to my current energy, my current vibe.'' When I got on the call with the 34-year-old artist on a Wednesday afternoon, the first thing I noticed was his hair tied up in little braids, the second was his wide smile. As we speak, the crooner laughs multiple times but it's his aura that shines through the computer screen, it lets you know better than his words that he's truly having the time of life.

Born Adekunle Kosoko, the popular Nigerian singer got married barely two years ago to fellow artist Simi. Last year, the power couple welcomed their first child. As we talk, Gold points to his journey as a father and a husband as some of the biggest inspirations at the moment not just as far as music goes but as his perspective in life and how he now approaches things.

''My [artistry] has changed a lot because being a father and being a husband has made me grow a lot and more.'' Adekunle Gold tells OkayAfrica. ''It has made me understand life a lot more too. I'm feeling more responsible for people. You know, now I have a kid to raise and I have a wife to support, to be a real man and husband and father for.'' He credits this journey with both his newfound happiness and a newfound freedom as an artist.
