New Video: Sarkodie Ft. Big Narstie & Jayso – Light It Up

Look..  I know this can be debated for hours and hours but I honestly think Sarkodie is the best rapper in Africa (Or at least top 2!). Lyrically he can flow over ANY beat and still sound dope! Now, I know size wise Ghana is small in comparison to some of the bigger countries (i.e Nigeria, South Africa etc) so his immediate fan base may be smaller in comparison to others but the guy is a beast man. Lyrics, flow, work rate he is up there with the best.

Check out the visual for the single Light It Up featuring Jayso and the London’s very own Big Narstie.

The single was produced by Sarks long time collaborator Jayso and the vide was directed by Dego Visionz & Chalky.

New Video: MI Abaga – You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Life

MI is one of the best rappers out of Nigeria (and arguably one of the best on the continent alongside Sark and some others). The Chocolate City boss continues to spit thought provoking lyrics and deliver effortless flows.

New Music: Wizkid Ft Future – Everytime


Now.. If you follow me on my personal Twitter you would know I was not a fan of Wiz’s latest album “Sounds From The Other Side”. I just felt like it was rushed and didn’t do the job it potentially could have done. Maybe my expectations were just too high for his major label debut but I felt like it was just a basic generic album with big feature names and no sense of direction.

Anyway, ahead of his Royal Albert Hall show this Friday Wiz releases a new track (That may or may not have been part of the album session) this time featuring Future entitled Everytime. The single was produced by Shizzi (I really should write up a blog post about why I was disappointed in the album because one point includes the lack of great African producers we know Wiz works well with).   

This is actually not too bad but I really do want Wiz to give us the traditional sounds we know he works so well on. Think Caro, Jaiye Jaiye, The Matter. You know the songs that got the dance floor moving? Bring back that Wiz!

Check it out and let me know what you think..

New Video: Sarkodie Ft. Jesse Jagz – Overdose & Glory Ft. Yung L

Next up we have Overdose & Glory

Overdose was produced by NOVA and features Nigerian rapper Jesse Jagz. The David Nicol-Sey directed video is my personal favourite visual of the six. The colours, the outfits, the face paint! The whole video gives me Chale Wote Street Art vibes and I love it!

Glory features Yung L, was produced by Jayso and directed by IKŌNE Agency. The video features a cameo from Sark’s adorable daughter and was shot on location in Paris (Don’t quote me on this but I saw Disney land and put two and two together lol).



His daughter is his twin! She is so adorable
