If you’ve got 7 minutes to kill (and who are you trying to fool, you’re on the internet, of course you have 7 minutes to kill) then I suggest you get high by proxy with Abba Makama’s off-the-wall introduction to all things Trip City. What is Trip City you ask? Tasti and Sukiyaki, the most colorful Naija rap duo you’ve every seen. Don’t believe me? Well, according to a fan known only by the moniker “Deep Guy,” they’re like yin and yang or some type of “whole rounded entity.” This is only one of many highly energetic, occasionally distorted eye witness accounts. You’ve gotta believe these guys because from what I can see in that video their fans are having way more fun then you’ve had all year.

Originally solo artists, rapper Tasti and rapper/singer/producer Sukiyaki have teamed up for a whirlwind of new school Naija rap. Their first single "Shon Sun" ft. Tunde J (listen below!) is every bit as kinetic as the above video suggests. We’ll be on the look out for more from this new duo, and definitely more crazy videos from Abba Makama.

And remember: don't be sleeping in Texas. Wanna know WTF that means? Check the vid.

The Tanzanian government has announced a new programme aimed at addressing the plight of young girls who have been impacted by this discriminatory ban. Tanzania's Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology Leonard Akwilapo said young girls will now be offered an opportunity to further their schooling at alternative colleges.
