Though the lines between Afropop and Caribbean dancehall have always seemed blurred through the different cross-overs within the genres, lately, the blending of both sounds has seemed more deliberate. Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire released his Africa and the Caribbean bridging ‘Abeng’ album earlier this year, but British artist, Kojo Funds, has always channelled African and Caribbean influences in his music. His latest attempt, “I Like”, sees him partnering with Wizkid for another romantic inclined song to serve dancefloor audiences.
“I Like” is produced by Rymez and G.A who build the lightweight harmonies of synths and a bouncy 808 samples around a catchy guitar riff that guides Kojo Funds and Wizkid’s melodic rendition about their romantic emotions towards their love interests. Dir LK directs the summer-themed music video for “I Like”, setting the singers at a beach house with pretty women as muse.
