Listen to Tshego’s Debut Album ‘Pink Panther’

Tshego's debut album is here.

Tshego's Pink Panther was one of the most anticipated South African albums of the year. After making the move from Family Tree to Universal Music Group, the artist released the single "No Ties," which features King Monada.

Pink Panther arrives today with 15 songs. Most of the production on the song is handled by him, alongside a selection of other producers. A handful of guests make appearances—Riky Rick, Kwesta, Focalistic, Tellaman, Black Cass and Frank Casino.

Pink Panther is a light-hearted album that will come in handy this summer. Apart from the lead single "No Ties," songs like "With My Bros," "Ubumnandi," "Me and You," "The Touch" and many others will make great soundtracks to the memories you'll make in the summer.

Throughout most of the album, Tshego sings over trap production, as you would expect if you've been a follower of his music.

Tshego has built his name in the last few years, appearing on several songs by other artists, such as Nasty C, Nadia Nakai, Cassper Nyovest and others.

Pink Panther will cement his place in the game.

Angélique Kidjo on Africa Day: 'We demand not to be at the mercy of our circumstances anymore.'

We speak to the inimitable Angélique Kidjo who shares some of her refreshing thoughts on Africa Day.

Today is Africa Day and while primarily a commemoration of the formation of the African Union (AU) back in 1963, it has also become an opportunity to unapologetically celebrate Africa while providing a moment for reflection on how far we've come as a continent and as a people.

With this year's theme focused on "Silencing the Guns in the context of the COVID19", there has never been a more important time for deep reflection on our collective present and future as Africans.

And who better to share in that reflection than the legendary and inimitable Beninese musician Angélique Kidjo? A fierce African and artist who has paved the way for many of her contemporaries including Burna Boy, Davido, Thandiswa Mazwai, and several others, the four-time Grammy award winner emphasises the urgent need for unity among Africans. 'It's about time that people start realising that Africa is a continent. I've been saying this my entire career,' she says passionately.

OkayAfrica spoke briefly to Kidjo who shared some of her refreshing thoughts on this year's Africa Day.
