One can only hope that maybe one day we, as a people can awaken from our drowse and appreciate all that which we’ve been sleeping on; canned fish, random acts of kindness, Seth Curry, Dark Waters (the movie), and of course, Manu Worldstar’s music.
Manu is no stranger to having his unbelievably good jams being buried under piles and piles of industry hogwash and noise that just happens to have a better promo. Remember “NaLingi”? Well, if you actually do, shout out to you! Manu Worldstar’s music deserves all the attention it’s currently being denied.
“Choko” is undeniably one of his best works yet. Even he knows it. The song has a laid back and reposeful nature and to top it off; its bass pounds in all kinds of right ways. However, the song is kind of self-limiting, in the sense that it is the type that you develop an unhealthy fixation on and cannot remember what life was like before it came along; and before you know it, you’ve overplayed it.
“Choko” surpasses most releases we’ve heard in the last month, and not just that, the song supports the claim that meaningful Afro Pop music can also come from Southern Africa.
