Takura, From Time To Time

Without downplaying the amount of pressure it actually is to constantly deliver, Takura can never have a bad music day – especially not when his musical efforts bring home a significant chunk of the country’s bacon! Takura became Takura by always boiling his sound down to its essence, down to the “why make music in the first place!” Hence his uncomplicated style will always triumph over the overworkshopped joints the…

J. Castell, Gimme a chance

‘Chilled’ resides in the narrow chasm between being laid back and being a mild sedative, a vibe that makes sense only when you’ve acquired the taste. The song is definitely beyond passable but not much has been done in the way of backing the claim that it’s actually an Afrobeats jam – but then again, what genre is not a spectrum nowadays? the song exudes more of Amvis than anyone…

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place, and he’s acutely aware that he can never will it back into existence. No Air is a somewhat tragic mosaic of memories, meticulously pieced together in such a way that both affliction and contentment can be heard, all for our auditory pleasure. The song is a calm and refined version of how most…

Tanto Wavie, John vhura gedhi

Tanto Wavie’s John Vhura Gedhi is exactly what you expect; a wildly amusing joint that’s also a hollow vessel to pass through without accumulation of anything substantial (not that anyone ever anticipates the opposite from songs of this nature). Like the original version, John Vhura Gedhi is a highly charged and light-hearted ditty rooted in frivolous and fun-loving grounds. You reach for this lay, not when you’re in your feels,…

KAE CHAPS – JUZI

As a result of its bitterish disposition, Kae Chaps’ Juzi is extremely relatable. Oftentimes we are haunted by the very same thing that was once intended for our joy; strand by strand, our happiness unraveling away. Heartbreak sounds amazing on Kae Chaps, and that is honestly why this song is not just another whining session fuelled by a crazy-quilt of emotion. Juzi is a slightly melodramatic and slightly laid back…

Rachel Chinouriri, Darker Place

If we’re being honest, the brouhaha about traditional pop is almost completely dead, and finally, the age of perfunctory songs is giving way to a more intriguing kind of sound. A kind of sound that involves more than just coaxing your vocals against a melody that many could claim have heard elsewhere. We’re now living for a “Darker Place” kind of sound. This appropriately named song appears to capture certain…

“91” explores all the altitudes associated with love

In as much as it feels like a more refined version of 2021 is stuck in traffic and our only option is to hang on to this insipid rough draft, let’s appreciate that certain pleasures, such as genuinely good music, are still within our reach. Award-winning vocalist, Tina Masawi has always been known for her distinctive art direction and virtuosity, and although it has taken longer than anticipated, the world finally gets to witness all of her might in the unfaltering light that is “91”; an album that just might be the surefire avowal we’re carrying with us this year. HOW FAR Unflinchingly, Tina hurls us into the conflagration and there is no turning back at this point. “How Far” is an affecting opener, and with it, she is asking…
