DBLACK EMBARKS ON THE “AFROBEAT TO THE WORLD” CAMPAIGN AS HE READIES A NEW ONE WITH AMERICAN RAPPER, OT GENASIS.

Published

Hip pop might have failed us in our quest for invading the western market, not particularly because we are not gifted but definitely because of sense of belonging . Hip pop when introduced in 1970’s  has always been a product of the western world and that’s why rap music couldn’t do the trick for we us Africans. That is to say that the only way Africans could have broken into the foreign market was to present a product that represents them as a people . But these few months have been bright for African music with “afrobeat” gaining the needed recognition and registering imprint globally. The likes of Sarkodie ,stonebwoy, burnaboy,Shatta wale,davido,wizkid,mr eazi are all pushing individually to see the frontal of African music shaped properly.
Nigerians have played an integral part with reference to sold outs concert and big international features using works of wizkid,Davido,burnaboy as a measure . Ghanaians on the other hand are trying to deepen the depth of the movement. Shatta wale got featured on Lion King Album by Beyoncé . Stonebwoy also with recent project Anloga Junction Album featured Keri Hilson, all massive moves to get the genre popularized.

Ghana’s Dblack who copped himself a deal with Sony earlier this month seems to be prioritizing the “Afrobeat to world” campaign. In his address after the Sony deal, he wrote on Instagram “I want to put Ghanaian music on the forefront of the Afrobeats global and this is the first with song/ATV”
The Black Avenue CEO happens to be living his statement with a video of him self and The American rapper OT Genasis in the studio surfacing the internet earlier this week.

Dblack on Sunday 21st June shared photos of himself and the “coco” hitmaker, on set for the visuals of the upcoming jam. The record which is an Afrobeat has Ghana’s duo dopenation on the hook and is produced by Willis beat, Dblack disclosed via a caption of one of the videos that popped up on social media. If you know the leverage of OT Genasis then you will appreciate this step by the “VERA” hitmaker .

The last time a Ghanaian featured an American rapper was  back in 2015 when Sarkodie featured Ace Hood. Major collaboration of such kind is long overdue and I think Dblack stepped in at the right time, especially at this moment Afrobeat is gaining global recognition. The release date of this jam is yet to be disclosed but we wait patiently for this banger. Congratulations to Dblack on this one.

Ghanaian powerhouse dance duo Mr Shawtyme & Yoofi Greene make their musical debut with the light-hearted afro-dance number “MamaDada”.

Already playing a key role in African music as professional dancers and choreographers, Mr Shawtyme and Yoofi Greene officially make their joint debut as recording artists with “MamaDada”, which features the DWP Academy and DJ Flex.

Mr Shawtyme and Yoofi Greene are both widely known for their viral dance videos, their highly coveted international dance workshops, and their work with superstars across the globe such as Mr Eazi, Wyclef, Shatta Wale, Fabulous, and Victoria Kinami, just to name a few.

Just in time for summer, the feel-good afro-infused jam is poised to set the jolly season ablaze. Speaking to Unorthodox Reviews, the duo revealed that though they penned the song with the primary intent of simply spreading good vibes through music and dance, “MamaDada” also has a cryptic message directed at typical African parents who hold the notion that their wards cannot make a decent living through music and dance, a problem that both creatives had to battle with on their come up. The song is thus intended to be an anthem for young creatives who find themselves in the same situation.

The duo also revealed that “MamaDada” is a precursor to a joint EP titled “Tales of Two Worlds” set to be released later on in the year, which is bound to have a lot more hit songs to look forward to.
