Tracka De Day: "Oleku" by Ice Prince ft. Brymo

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Curious what's bangin' in the clubs in Sierra Leone and Liberia?  This catchy track "Oleku," (by Ice Prince ft. Brymo) which is also laden with a sort of sad, beautiful singing, is heating things up from Monrovia to Freetown.  There's something we just love about the sort of low-value production, semi-auto-tune, pretty singing and impassioned rapping that comes along with so many West African pop hits.  Apparently on this joint there's some debate about the actual lyrics - Chief Boima who first posted abou this over on Ghettobassquake, says "Peeling the boil egg, she peeling, peeling the boil egg… is the number one youtube comment. lmao!" - people definitely get creative while trying to decipher lyrics.
