The Nigerian superstar unveils the romantic and light-hearted video of “Dangerous Love”, already in the top 10 of 16 African countries.

Tiwa Savage needs no introduction: with a career lasting more than 10 years, with numerous classics, hits and three albums to her name, the afrobeat singer is indeed a superstar. In 2018, she even managed to beat Davido, Fally Ipupa and Shekhinah by being selected as the best African artist at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

The singer is currently preparing her 4th album, Celia, which should be released very soon via American label Motown. “Dangerous Love” is a single of the upcoming project and sets the bar high for this body of work. Produced by Cracker Mallo, a beatmaker known for his collaborations with Olamide and Zlatan, the track is a bewitching and suave mix of afrobeats and RnB.

In the vocals that punctuate the refrains, one can recognize in particular the signature voice of the singer Oxlade, who participated in the elaboration of the title track. The scenario of the clip is simple and perfectly embodies the purpose of the song: Tiwa, under the advice of her friends, prepares herself for the dangerous coming of her crush.

 

The king of the Ghanaian hip-hop scene and the rapper E-40 share new song accompanied by the music video.

One of the best rappers of his generation in Ghana and on the continent, Michael Owusu Addo, better known as Sarkodie, is back after his collaboration with the lyricist M.anifest on “Brown Paper Bag”.

In collaboration with the American rapper, actor and entrepreneur, E-40, the “Rap King”, unveils the visuals for the new track “CEO Flow”.

“CEO Flow” features Sarkodie and E-40 in a recording studio where the Ghanaian rapper flows mix with those of the legendary West Coast rapper. A top-notch performance with two emblematic rappers in a very lively atmosphere.

Outkast star Big Boi has teased there may be a new collaboration with one of his musical heroes - Kate Bush.

The rapper is a lifelong fan of the Wuthering Heights singer and even jetted to Britain in 2014 to catch one of her comeback shows in London, where he met the Brit backstage.

"I love Kate Bush," he told journalist Lyndsey Parker in a recorded interview for Sirius XM.

"That’s my people, man," Big Boi explained.

"My uncle turned me on to her since I was, like, in 8th grade... He turned me on to Kate and Fleetwood Mac and Sting and Lynyrd Skynyrd," he recollected, enthusing that Kate Bush tied with Bob Marley for his 'top two artists of all time,' with N.W.A. a close contender.

Recalling his meeting with Bush backstage at the Hammersmith Apollo six years ago, Big Boi added: "It was super-dope to go in and just to see all the songs play out onstage and the theatrical everything. And at the end of the show, she invited me and my wife back to the dressing room to have a glass of wine."

Kate and Big Boi met for dinner in 2017 and now the rap star is hoping to get in the studio with the singer for a dream duet that could appear on Big Sleepover, his upcoming joint album with Sleepy Brown.

"Stay tuned," he said, "I can’t even talk about it right now!"
