Like DAVIDO said we rise by lifting others. This should be the mantra that moves across every African mindset and should spread to every corner. Second week just passed by, Here are some new 5 diverse creatives from Africa that are working an extra mile.

The aesthetic!!! You will definitely love her. Without a doubt. You will have a million reasons to like her music. One of the finest voices in Africa, dedication and passion is within her. Gratitude is a must. That flow from her latest visual release for GRATITUDE off the DANCE & DANCE EP is definitely a vibe. The EP also features Zimbabwe’s TAMY MOYO, J.DEROBIE from Ghana, FALZ from Nigeria and PAGE
2 »» CRAYON
It’s obvious we were already hooked to IJO while CRAYON and his team were pushing on the campaign to drop IJO. From Nigeria and only 21 years but you may agree with us that it’s literally hard to ignore his work. IJO became a trend before it was even released. A big shout out to MAVIN, we need more of such labels across Africa. CRAYON we are here to witness the journey.
3 »» DJ ACE FRVR
The switch from being a dancer to one of the sort of after DJs in Zimbabwe. Hyping the club scene with his cool and vibrant aesthetic, a voice not to ignore. More emphasis on the need for DJs to make their own music is still there. ACE FRVR made PIANO TECH 1.0 which was mad nice and still people are trying to understand the sound and at the same time vibing to it. Now he is set to release PIANO TECH 2.0, we had the privilege to listen to it. We have to say just wooooow !!!!! We won’t spoil it for you and let you listen to it once released.

Amapiano is surely taking the world by storm. Without a doubt !. Having vocals on that amapiano tip, one cannot ignore. Having vocals such as NKOSAZANA’s is just mind blowing. At only 21 she has already paved a visible path for her career. She has worked with some of the biggest names in South Africa like MASTER KG, DJ MAPHORISA, TYLER ICU, HEAVY K, just to name a few.
