Award winning Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol have collaborated with top singer Nyashinski for their new track “Short and Sweet”. The song is already available on all major music streaming platforms such as Songa music by Safaricom, Spotify and iTunes.
“Even before I came back to Kenya, I was always in awe of the works of Sauti Sol. It’s amazing how we struck a cord almost immediately, and we’ve grown to become friends. I always believed this (working together) was going to happen at some point; the actualization is an honor to be part of their Afrikan Sauce project", Nyanshiski said.
“Short and Sweet” is the fifth single of their upcoming LP “Afrikan Sauce” which is set to be released soon.
Other songs in the LP include; Melanin featuring Nigeria's Patoranking, Rewind our very own rapper Khaligraph Jones, Afrikan Star feat Nigeria's Burna Boy, Girl Next Door feat Nigerian songstress Tiwa Savage and Live and Die in Afrika (Remix) American rapper Rick Ross.
Ugandan master of hits and classics, Navio teams up The Mith (Uganda) and Nigeria’s Ice Prince in new release titled “Paper”.
The single, presented by Navcorp and Icon, is produced by Mo Piano and mastered by Dawoo at Audio Central. It’s a super fresh and clean track with edgy hip-hop sounds meets trap. The video was shot and edited by the power duo: Shiloh and Henix.
”The single is the flagship production under Icon, Navio’s brand new cutting edge Ugandan studio and label, opening soon. It’s just one among many of Navio’s great projects set to launch. “This song is really about those on the hustle and push limits to achieve their dreams. It’s also a cautionary tale with hints of vengeance and the pitfalls of the high life,” he adds.
“Paper” follows the success of “Nielewe” collaboration between Navio and Vanessa Mdee.
Navio, The Mith and Ice Prince are some of Africa’s most consistent artistes in the game, with their contribution to hip hop music scene being insurmountable, with Navio and Ice Prince having delivered some of last year’s biggest hits like “Njogereza” and “Particular”.
Navio concludes: “With three lyricists with 20 years of experience between them, “Paper” goes everywhere. A big shout out to my Kenyan fans who keep pushing me towards being more than just the most award-winning hip-hop artiste in East Africa. We're just warming up!" With enough lyrical interplay to satisfy any hip-hop fan, “Paper” is a collaboration set to become another one of Navio’s smash hits.
