Tiwa Savage's Sugarcane EP

The Queen of Afrobeats is back with an infectious and impressive 6-track EP that's well worth your time. We talked to Tiwa Savage about the EP, having Chris Martin as a fan, motherhood and more in a new interview here.

Wande Coal "Oh No No"

Wande Coal follows up his massive hit "Iskaba" with the reggae-dancehall influenced "Oh No No." The CheekyChizzy-produced new single sounds like it has the potential to become another big one.

Major League Djz x Patoranking x Riky Rick x Kly

"Do Better," the big collaboration from South Africa's Major League Djz with Nigerian dancehall act Patoranking, SA star rapper Riky Rick, and Kly, gets the visual treatment.

Kah-Lo "Fasta"

Kah-Lo, who earned herself Grammy-nomination earlier this year for her track with Riton, comes through with another 90s-vibe house track and video with "Fasta."

Oluwole

We somehow missed a few incredible jams from Nigeria's Oluwole earlier this year but have been making up for lost time by playing catchy tunes like "Kamari" featuring Jesse Jagz, "Nagode," and "Gbabe" over and over. Purchase them on iTunes.

Shaydee x Wizkid

Shaydee enlists none-other-than Wizkid for his latest single, "Make Sense."
