Award-winning British-Ghanaian Londoner, Goldkay sparks off irresistible hype with a brand-new music video for his very recent Afroswing single, ‘Party’. Directed by PPV, Goldkay’s new visual glamour looks as trendy as it sounds and is bound to keep music fans tied to their summer moods for a while longer. ‘Party’ is available on all digital streaming platforms here: https://ffm.to/goldkayparty
Like the single before it, the music video tries to reinstate Goldkay’s Rotterdam-inspired summer experience and does so convincingly. Starting off with a trace of chromatic aberration, viewers are given a brief first-person feel of what seems to be an all-night rave, right before Goldkay’s grand entree. It’s all flashing lights and infectious vibes from there onwards, with PPV using bursts of colour to beautifully capture the ambience of each scene – all teeming with liquor, gyal-dem and mandem, basking in the night’s glory.
Before emerging as a solo artist and bursting onto the UK Afrobeat landscape with his infectious Afroswing, R&B and Dancehall fusion sound, highlighted by his breakout track ‘Bluffin’, Goldkay started out in music as a member of the acclaimed British choir group, Gospel singers, Incognito, where he was able to hone his craft – amassing over 30 million views on YouTube, with performances at the BBC, Channel 4, Bestival, Sky One and ITV, while also working with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Dappy (N-Dubz), Westlife and Crazy Cousinz, among others.
Goldkay’s new music video builds on the back of the success of his very recent single of the same name ‘Party’ – a must listen.
Stonebwoy features Family in latest video “Ever Lasting” – [WATCH HERE]
Stonebwoy – Ghana’s shining Black Star has for years been consistent with his music and international growth, making beautiful music with some of the world’s leading A-list musicians of our time. His latest 5-star project “Anloga Junction” is a complete body-of-work set apart by its intentionality with regards to features, music structuring and song compositions.
In a bid of celebrating the successes chalked so far in the last six months since the project was made available for public’s consumption, and a mechanism arrayed to intensify its promotion, the Chief Executive Officer of Burniton Music Group (BMG) has premiered the official visual interpretation of one of the bangers on the album, “Ever Lasting”.
The energetic black & white visuals feature the family, including the wife, Dr. Louisa Satekla and daughter, Catherine Jidula (CJ) and son, Livingstone Jnr. The audio is a party vibe mixed with the African spice to make every listener want put on their dancing shoes. The construction of the chorus is superbly crafted as he mixes his tribal language with English and how it blends together to make a perfect sound. The beautiful piece celebrates, adore and acknowledge the strength of women.
Over the last 3 three years, CJ. has grown to become the public’s favorite young “celebrity”. With a monumental social media presence of about 70,000 followers on Instagram at just 3, the first child of the Ghanaian born reggae & dance-hall musician is the brand ambassador of The Kid Cart – a shopping centre where kids clothing, learning and educational resources can be bought at an affordable price.
She’s on her own path. CJ. is often seen showing off her dancing moves or posing for the camera before her dance lessons. It doesn’t stop there, she also loves doing crafts, learning and making her own renditions of his father’s songs. With her obvious keen interest in creative arts, it is of high possibility she will “wear her father’s shoe”.
UK/ Stonebwoy And ZieZie Are The Guest Artistes On Wauve’s “Pamela” Song [WATCH VIDEO]
Tomorrow, October 23, North London producer and artist Wauve, aka Robeal Yohannes, will release his debut EP Shade. Although he describes himself as a producer first and a singer a distant second, if the EP’s new single “Pamela”, which features Afrobeats stars ZieZie and Stonebwoy is anything to go by, we can’t help but feel like he’s being a bit hard on himself. Stream song here: https://wauve.lnk.to/ShadeEPIN
Having found a deeper connection to his Eritrean roots as he’s grown up, Wauve’s music is leaning more and more into that East African influence, taking pentatonic scales and homegrown rhythms and blending them into the traditionally West African Afrobeats sound. Add to that a touch of the R&B and trap that first inspired him to make music and the result is light and breezy sound that takes Afrobeats into new territories that should probably be explored a bit more.
Hit play at the top to see Wauve, ZieZie and Stonebwoy cut loose in the barbers while they try to catch the attention of the titular heroine.

Koffee Drops “Pressure” Visuals With Additional Verse From Buju Banton
Back in August, Koffee liberated the new single “Pressure,” which saw an accompanying live performance visual courtesy of Highsnobiety for their “Not In Paris” feature. This week, the Jamaican star drops off a new visual for the track’s remix, which sees an additional verse from dancehall/reggae legend Buju Banton:
“From wi born ina di struggle isolated inna bubble what law fi di rich yet another fi di poor, Jah bless and please help us we caan take no more, we feeling di pressure way down to di core/”
“How money fi deh ya wen dem sen it offshore? An every nation come ya get rich and we stay poor, dem show you twenty dollar weh go through di back door, tell dem, tell dem seh we caan tek no more!/”
“Under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, if yuh poor, trouble tek you, when yuh rich it nuh settle/”
The visual contains shots of beautiful black men, women, and families, all of whom are surely going through their own trials and tribulations (as we all are). In addition to that, Koffee and Banton are seen performing the powerful cut in different locations as footage of protests in lieu of systemic racism are happening all over the world.
“Pressure” follows another dope cut titled “Lockdown,” which was released in July. Prior to that, Koffee liberated the EP Rapture in March last year, which saw five tracks and a single feature from Jane Macgizmo. Meanwhile, Buju Banton released Upside Down 2020 in June, his first since his release from prison in 2018 that saw 20 cuts and additional appearances from Stephen Marley, John Legend, Pharrell Williams, and Stefflon Don. His last official project, Before The Dawn, was released in 2010.
UK/ Emeli Sandé Hosts Stonebwoy And Nana Rogues On Her Latest Jam – More Of You [WATCH HERE]
Multiple BRIT Award winner Emeli Sandé today releases new song More of You – an infectious and unique musical collaboration with Ghanaian recording artiste Stonebwoy and British producer/songwriter Nana Rogues. Stream audio here: https://slinky.to/MoreOfYou
Released on new Mancunian record label Sengge Zangbo, the irresistible track plays out as a timeless ode to love, superbly capturing the sacred moment of falling head over heels for someone you’ve waited your whole life to meet.
Written by Sandé following an inspired meeting with Nana Rogues whilst out in LA, the songs heavenly melodies, captivating energy and glorious influence of new wave, afro soul fuse together to create an uplifting anthem that the whole world so desperately needs to hear.
“I was falling in love…” Emeli says candidly when explaining the origins and sentiment behind the track. “And I wanted to sum up the feeling that creeps up on you and catches you by surprise.”
“First the feelings are subtle, a strange sensation of missing someone you consider a friend which starts to build. In this song I wanted to capture the crossover moment when you realise the subtle feelings you once perhaps denied have now been realised into something undeniable you want to shout from the rooftops. You can’t get enough, you can’t share their love and want the whole world to know how beautiful they are to you.”
“’More of You’ is a big record!” Stonebwoy adds. “It’s been amazing connecting with the legendary Emeli, via my brother Nana Rogues… this is a great cultural moment with three super-sonic creatives on one masterpiece.”
