It has been a while since we shared good African music. This time we share music from Iyanya and Ghanaian singer MzVee. Our Friday Jam is to get you into a good mood for the weekend and we believe good Afro music will set that mood.
Iyanya – Away
ABINA regards Iyanya a smooth boy, who had us dancing with his handsome looks on the songs Kukere and Ur waist. He gets us on the dance floor again with his latest single Away. The Nigerian Afrobeats artist first started as an R&B singer, but turned to Afrobeats to show a versatile side of himself. Well, he is definitely showing thát. Away sounds like a blend of Nija and Coupé decalé. The video, which I think is probabily shot in the UK, matches the energy of the song perfectly.
MzVee – Natural Girl
MzVee is a Ghanaian singer, whom ABINA is convinced we should look out for. I say this on my radio show and I will share it on ABINA: females are under represented in the Afro music scene, but I hope this will change in the coming years. What I also hope will change, is more African artist having a website. Charle, it’s so difficult to find a good bio of any of these upcoming artists. From the look of things, Mzvee is a Dancehall/Reggae star. Natural Girl is on replay on the Ipod and you should enjoy your Friday with this!
