M.anifest – Forget Dem
M.anifest (Ghana) is not your average M.C. He is one to always tell a story in his videos and lyrics in creative ways. His latest record Forget Dem, produced by KillBeatz (popularily known from R2Bees and his productions for Fuse ODG), is one that takes me back home. With samples from Nana Quame´s Atia Donkor (Ghanaian highlife singer), Killbeatz brought a very innovative tune to the mix. If you ask me, M.anifest gets a 10 for creativity again.
Locko – Margo
Locko is a 23-year old Cameroonian singer/songwriter and producer who started off posting videos of covers on Youtube. His covers quickly went viral on social media platforms and his talent caught the eye of Big Dreams Entertainment label, where he was signed a few months ago. Margo is Locko’s first official single and it’s a beautiful serenade dedicated to a girl he loves, mixing both R&B and Afrobeats with some typical traditional music from Cameroon. We are keeping an eye on this one. Follow Locko on Twitter.
