My African Music Fantasy


I just discovered that Eddy Kenzo did a song with Patoranking. Cool. Somewhere in my African music fantasy is a strong musical connection between Nigeria and Eastern/Central Africa. (I'd argue that the Naija-South Africa experiment, yes, experiment! didn't quite produce much. I'd thought the track between 2Face and Zara was gonna be so big to the point it will become African Union anthem. Nope! Same as those hip-hop tracks between Naija rappers and SA rappers.

But Naija-Ghana experiment produced some good songs. And still does.

Tanzania's Diamond Platinumz has some decent songs with Nigeria acts but I'm not big on him.

I hope for a P-square and Kenya's Sauti Sol collaboration.

But my ultimate ultimate fantasy is a Naija-Burundi one, featuring 2Face and Kidum. The unity of Africa will depend on that song!
