Wizkid, Ice Prince & AKA Remix Jeremih's 'Don’t Tell ‘Em'

Wizkid, Ice Prince, and AKA hop on one of the biggest club songs this year, "Don't Tell Em" by Jeremih.


Here's a track to kick the weekend off right. Starboy WizkidIce Prince Zamani and South African spitter AKA, three of Africa's heavyweight rappers, hop on Jeremih's massive hit song “Don’t Tell ‘Em” for this "Afro-Remix." The Chicago crooner released the chart-topping "Don't Tell Em" earlier this year in preparation for his upcoming album Late Nights and Wizkid, Ice Prince, & AKA team up to give the club and radio anthem another spin. Riding the current DJ Mustard-wave (alongside co-producer Mike Schultz) the “Don’t Tell Em” remix keeps much of Jeremih's original with Wizkid adding his smooth, near-reggae bars before Ice Prince and AKA each go in over the track's hyphy drums and house chords. As if to see who can trump who, the trio's verses mainly hover around their rendezvous habits. Listen to "Don't Tell 'Em (Afro-Remix)" below.

These Women Are Breaking Boundaries In Nigeria's Creative Spaces

We speak to five women about their work and contributions to Nigerian society & creative spaces, despite their patriarchal nature.

"African women in general need to know that it's ok for them to be the way they are–to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence" —Wangarĩ Muta Maathai

These words prompt one to think about how terrible a job the media does in sharing the stories of African women. As journalists, our work is based on telling African stories, and the gap of female stories is a very apparent one that needs filling. It's important to have an environment that appreciates fearless and unapologetic women chasing their dreams and breaking the boundaries before them.

We caught up with Toketemu Ohwovoriole, a multimedia storyteller & journalist; Solis, a singer, songwriter, poet, & muse; Lauretta Yemoja, a beauty artist and rapper/singer; Tiwa Pearl, a dancer and creative; and Oyinkansola Dada, an art curator and founder of art gallery Polartics, to talk about their careers.
