Music is not just a means of entertainment. Music is a way of life. Music is culture. This is what BBNaija Lockdown winner Laycon set out to pass across with his latest song, HipHop. But Laycon isn’t the only artist expressing his love for music this week. Artistes across Africa do it everyday as they churn out song after song for fans to vibe to.
A few weeks back, Sarkodie linked up with Zlatan in Accra for his recording academy program. Videos on the internet suggested they both recorded a song, one fans have been anticipating. This week, fans get the opportunity to listen to Hasta la vista, an intra-country collaboration between Ghana and Nigeria.
