Off the back of his most recent single release titled Turkey Nla” which arrived only a few months ago, Afro-fusion artist King Perryy has now shared the Tekno-assisted remix for the record.

Vigro Deep – “Shukushuku” ft. Senjay

South African DJ and producer Vigro Deep makes music that sees listeners at the base of their emotions. Last Friday, he shared his latest project titled ‘My House, My Rules,’ which featured the standout track, “Shukushuku.” The party-starting bop “Shukushuku,” finds him teaming up with Senjay for an instantly memorable anthem. In usual Vigro Deep fashion, he makes use of log drums, heavy kicks and ascending cymbals to create otherwordly melodies that provide the perfect backdrop for his collaborators. 

R2Bees – “Su Mo Mi”

Following their streak of releases this year, Ghanaian duo R2Bees have recently arrived with their most recent release titled “Su Mo Mi.” The uptempo Amapiano record sees the duo at their most experimental, as they explore more drums and heavy beats. Over the KillBeatz production, the artists sing in their native dialects about their attraction to their love interests.

ManLikeJoe – “Games” ft. Niinety9

Newcomer ManLikeJoe has recently shared his new single titled “Games.” On the new number, he taps Afropop singer Niinety9 to deliver a romantic number. Over the melodious Johnson IP produced-track, the pair serenade their respective love interests with lyrics such as “All day, all day I’m thinking about you/my way, my way baby you go come my way.” 

Fasina – “Bad 4 Me”

Fasina makes sweet-sounding music that has earned him a loyal following of listeners. On his latest single, “Bad 4 Me,” the singer opens up about a toxic lover who he can’t get off his mind. Over twinkling keys and R&B-infused production with Afropop sensibilities, he sings “They say that you’re bad/all these boys do is cap cap cap,” as he lets her know the extent to which he’s willing to go for her.

Ronisia – “Probleme” ft. CKay

For the uninitiated listener, Ronisia was first introduced on CKay’s debut album ‘Sad Romance,’ when he featured the Cape Verde singer on the record “Lose You.” Now, Ronisia is here with her most recent offering titled “Probleme,” with a guest verse from CKay. The record finds the both artists reminding their muses about the hold they have over them. While Ronisia sings in her native dialect, her vocal texture combined with CKay’s give the record a special touch.
