Fans of Wale will know he’s always been open about his Nigerian roots and even featured on a few songs by African artists like Olamide and more. However, he’s taken a full turn into the Afrobeat culture with this new track.
There is a simply method to this, simply take something simple for your chorus, something someeone who doesn’t speak nglish can mimick and extend/stress the last vowel and bounce whilst singing it, repeat it lots and you are halfway to making an afrobeat song. The rest is in the instrumental.
However, here is how much afrobeats he went, girls in the video were all laced up in African print bikini’s, it seems a shot of B Fyne swimwear could even be spotted in there. And who remembers our togolese glamour model Maria who appeared in Wyclef’s video (link), well she makes a cameo here to. So are you loving this wave of African x African American songs? Mind you its not long ago Davido put R.Kelly on his ‘If’ remix. watch below and let us know what you think.
