Blue Flame Moments Radio Show is a gospel / inspirational focussed 30 minute broadcast  - airing every Saturday at 10pm Eastern / 9pm Central.

Ed Sheeran has denied Wiley's claims that he refused to feature on one of the rapper's tunes.

The British grime pioneer called Ed out on Twitter last week, calling him a "pagan" after the superstar climbed to the top of the U.K. charts with his Take Me Back to London remix, featuring verses from Stormzy, Aitch, and Jaykae.

Wiley, real name Richard Kylea Cowie, Jr., expanded his point during an interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra's DJ Dotty, labelling the singer "fake as hell" and a "culture vulture".

The rapper/producer had previously worked with Ed on his No.5 Collaborations EP back in 2011, before the Shape of You singer hit the big time, but claimed Ed had refused to return the favour when he asked him to appear on a new song for his own album.

However, Ed hit back at Wiley's claims in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday, telling the star he just "wanna clear a few things up".

"I never said no to doing a song for you after we made You for no.5," Ed explained. "You wanted to release If I could the same week as my debut single on a major label and I merely asked if you could move to a week before or a week after, which you did, the song came out, and I’m still very proud of it.

“I’ve said yes to 90 per cent of the features I’ve been personally asked for, unless I’ve been on a break or I haven’t known the artist personally."

Insisting he has a "deep respect" for both Wiley and the grime scene as a whole, Sheeran concluded: "I look forward to (album) godfather 3, excited to hear it... This is the last (I’ll) say on this.”

Bulgaria's Nilsat IPTV provider has added African FM to its suite of programming content.

Before Sixu Tidiane Touré and Ismail Touré’s reissue of Mandinka Dong LP comes out on September 16, American DJ Bosq produces two groovy edits. 

Boston native, Medellín, Colombia based Benjamin Woods, creating under the name Bosq, has been tirelessly exploring the intersections of afro-latin music with disco, funk, reggae, house and hip hop for years. Already known for making reinterpretations of old classics in his own style, Bosq offers two dancefloor friendly edits for the reissue of the long lost 1979 debut record from Senegalese brothers band Touré Kunda by Hot Mule and Secousse.

40 years later, the American producer reworks “Utammada” into a jazzy deep-house track and “Ntinkerinta” into a modern afro-house anthem – listen to it above.

As a reminder, Mandinka Dong is faithfully restored and remastered, it will be available in both digital and physical formats (gatefold vinyl illustrated with photos from the artists’ archives and liner notes by Frank Tenaille, the band’s official biographer).
