Olamide and Wizkid Bring Summer Vibes on Their New Single 'Kana'

Listen to the afrobeats stars' latest collaboration.

Start your weekend off the right way with this new jam from Naija afrobeats heavyweights Olamide and Wizkid.

The two link up once again on the breezy new single "Kana" produced by Mutay of Legendury Beatz. We get to hear Olamide flex his singing chops on the 3 and a half minute track as he and Wiz go back and forth about pampering the women they love in Yoruba.

It's a light, mid-tempo cut that sets the perfect vibe for the oncoming warm weather.


This is the duo's latest collaboration following earlier bangers like "Omotoshan,"" Rapsodi" and "Confam Ni." They make a pretty dependable duo when it comes to delivering bangers if we do say so ourselves.

Olamide will be performing in New York on May 11. You can grab tickets here.

"As We Struggle Everyday" is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their 'leaders' accountable, but often failing to do so. Throughout the song, Femi sings "As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail."
