I’m back esirlaniacs-the Drake feeling of how Nicki Minaj is back in the game after ditching meek-is the mood I’m on.Sorry for the break;Anyway I’m now taking a day off from the break to give you 10 of the best tracks in 2017’s first quater.
Feel free to drop your opinion on other tracks you think should have been on the list.
10.Marry You-Diamond Platnumz ft Ne-Yo
Tanzania’s superstar and WCB’s head honcho Diamond is having a stellar year personally with his second child a new addition to his family,music wise this has slowed him down but this effort that featured US platinum selling act Ne-Yo has been a dope effort with a RnB-Bongo feel to it that sees both artist give their best.
9.Muziki-Darassa ft Ben Pol
What do yo expect?? *Darassa Voice*.This is Tz’s biggest jam in a long time i feel.The feel good vibe the track delivers is perfect if only we had summer…Ben Pol’s presence just make it all better.The funny lyrics and accent delivered by darassa make the song only fun and this is dance tune you need to cop.
8.Kama Kawaida-Mayonde,MDQ,Fena Gitu,Kagwe Mungai
Kenyan music never felt so perfect.Personally this is my Favorite jam on the list and I’m proud to say I’m KENYAN simply cause of kama kawaida lit up the scene.Kagwe did perfect with the beats;MDQ and Fena slayed their verses and well Mayonde just heavenly certified the track with that killer voice.*ear orgasms*.Listening to it as i write just makes me feel like writing bout it the whole day.Nairobi bounce and get lit to this sizzling joint.
Alhaji Tekno’s Pana is a track that won’t just fade away with time let’s call it wine;Each time I hear it and I judge everyone does it just feels better than it was.It has inspired minor challenges on musically and youtube and it steady grows.I’ll let the guy with the big cassava sing his way into your heart.
6.NDA-Nasty C ft Dj Vinyl Kid
The best African (T)Rapper is on my list again.I was hoping after last year Nasty C won’t slow down and boy is he just getting fast and furious with three massive tracks that could all fit in this list namely Golden,NDA,Verge.On NDA-New D**k Alert he features his dj Vinyl Kid and goes on to show why he’s the coolest kid in Africa.This is trappy heaven!!
P.S:Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee snapped himself geting down to this jam.
5.The World Is Yours-AKA
On his album LEVELS ,Supa Mega experimented with fusions of Kwaito-House-Dance & his forte Rap to come up with one of the best African albums.Fast forward to his late 2016 and 2017 releases that included Caiphus song,One time and The world is yours that magical fusion is paying off as evident in this awesome club banger.Released on November 2016 The world is yours continues to top South Africa music charts.Long Live Supa Mega Live Long..*I’mma mega tron-biggest AKA fan*
4.Hush Up The Silence-Wizkid ft Drake
Wizkid is simply making 2017 a carnival year back to back releases with this and another carribean inspired jam the top of his 4 releases.Riding off the success of his featured Drake effort One Dance;Starboy Wizkid linked up with the 6 god again and delivered this absolute hippy jam.I hope visuals to this drop soon Wizzy.This is that *I’m on vacation chilled and lit vibe*.
Oh Boy This makes us dance…I could bet my life that no African club won’t play this track each day since it’s release.Yeah my life depends on that Daddy Yo is a smash hit anytime of the day and anywhere you play it.Wait just press play above or below and thank me later.
2.Leg Over-Mr Eazi
This jam is magical…How it makes you get up and still soothes the hell out of you is still a fact my head can’t get into control;Beat’s apple have it in their A list songs 2017.Mr Eazi is easily the biggest African act of 2017 no matter what happens during the year.His mixtape Life is Eazi:Accra to Lagos debuted number 4 on Billboard’s worlds chart and is currently on the DETTY world tour that’ll see him perform in 50 destination points.Man life is actually eazi Leg Over is a favorite on the list and I highly recommend you listen to Tilapia & Short skirt(ft Tekno) off his mixtape..Hell just buy his mixtape on iTunes.
1.Mad over You-Runtown
It’ll definitely be a number one contender for African song of the year on all award shows with that category.Runtown is high key dominating charts with this monster tune and is low key dominating 2017 music scene with features on Painkiller(ft Sarkodie),Can’t hear you(ft iLLbliss).Runtown is one of my favorite acts in African behind AKA and Nasty C well Runtown and Eazi are battling for the third position but he definitely grabs the number one spot here.Love will bite after you here this track and makes me feel sorry for being single anyway I de Mad over you reading this.Few beats in and you’ll be clapping.
