The album features Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Salif Keita, Yemi Alade, Zeynab, and a host of other African stars. She describes the album as her reckoning with climate change and her own legacy.
DJ Spinall releases the music video for his collaboration with Ycee and Oxlade, titled 'Jabole'. It is one of the songs off his 2020 album, 'Grace'. The track was produced by Spinall himself and the video was shot by Dali Adias.
Patoranking drops this feel-good song just days after his birthday, which speaks about giving people their flowers when they are still alive. This is some beautiful music that you do not want to miss out on.
