To say Khali Cartel is good is an understatement as this new cypher is off the charts. The artists’ selection cuts across little known rappers, fast-rising rappers and seasoned rappers.

First up on the stand is fast rising rapper Bey T who is popular for hits like Wololo and Facetime. The lass inarguably the best on the cypher and has the longest slot on the project. Bey T is the truth as she comes through with some killer bars and flow. She showcases her lyrical prowess as she tackles the #PlayKeMusic movement, her come up and intention to make it to the top as well as takes shots at Tanasha Donna whom she beefed with earlier this year.

Rekles from the Gengetone group Ethic is a favourite of many and as much as he fumbled in the beginning he caught on to deliver one of his best raps yet. His verse on Khali Cartel 3 helps him assert himself as a rapper to look out for in Kenya’s ever-growing music scene.

YemiAladeTop Afro-pop singer, Yemi Alade, has said that she might never do a music project with fellow Nigerian star Tiwa Savage.

The most popular Nigerian songstresses who have amassed influence worldwide may never collaborate because of the “troubles” from their fans.

In an interview with a popular TV station, Alade said a collaboration might not attract positive reactions from the public, reported Daily Post Nigeria.

It’s unfortunate that with the feelings and troubles that people keep stirring in our ways, it probably will never allow us to ever have a collaboration. Because you’re not sure the outcome would even be positive or be overrun by negative things and all the fights.

“When we do music, we do it so people can be happy, so when we do a song together, what are we fueling? What are we encouraging? That’s the most important question when I do collaborations, there is an aim. I think what would be would be,” Alade said.

TIWA SAVAGE RELEASES NEW SINGLE DUBBED 49-99

Tiwa SavageyNigerian-born artist Tiwa Savage widely regarded as the African Beyonce has released her new single, ’49-99′, via Motown Records.

Since signing her deal international deal with Universal Music Group the explosive track will be her first release with Motown Records which serves as her US label.

While utterly infectious, ’49-99′ makes a powerful statement about poverty. Tiwa Savage explains, ’49-99′ is a term coined from the hard life many Nigerians go through. A transit bus serves as a case study. It ought to have only 49 seated passengers, however, due to poor economic conditions, we often have nearly twice that number of passengers standing (99).”

“The song encourages the young to put down the sense of inheritance and work for what they desire in life, for a better tomorrow. We can’t sit on our old glories and expect things to change for the better. ‘49-99’ also addresses some political leaders who, instead of focusing on the growth of a nation, are there just for the money and having affairs with underage girls – while the citizenry is hustling hard to make a daily living,” added the 39-year-old.
