A frobeat has quickly become a mainstream genre, not just in Africa, but across the globe. With this development comes the drive to release even more music — more wavy sounds that everyone can vibe to. Still leaving a trail of hot singles until the release of his album, Adekunle Gold has released a new single titled Mercy, which gives fans another taste of what to expect from his highly anticipated album.
Musical legend 2Baba continues to prove that he’s still got that sauce that made us fall in love with him 20 years ago. The veteran has also released a new love song, Smile, which will be in the lips of people as Valentine’s Day fast approaches. Other Afrobeat powerhouses gave us amazing jams to groove to this weekend and we’ve curated a list of the top five.
