With the new label comes Judah The EP which has a track titled The Tribe featuring Alpha Ojini who was once a fan. On The Tribe, MI can be heard delivering his line in what sounds like Trap music while Alpha feels elated to be part of the tribe.
4. Stonebwoy – African Party
Known as Ghanaian King of dancehall and reggae music, Stonebwoy takes his title up a notch with the release of African Party. Thisis his second single off his forthcoming album tagged Anloga Junction. We all know that any African Party is always lit!
5. Mayorkun – Geng
What Geng do you belong to? 2020 is not far spent but artists are already giving us slangs we can relate with. DMW’s Camp singer and songwriter, Mayorkun made us choose our Geng at the start of the decade and he has gone on to release the official music video of his anthemic hit single tiled Geng.
