Salutations, fellow auditory travelers! Yet another week of sonic adventuring has elapsed, and we have unearthed a few new gems to celebrate through yet another slow release window. Luckily, the best amongst us will always be unable to unearth the roughest of diamonds. I bring those diamonds to you today.

However, before we get there, I’d like to encourage you to follow us on our socials, @Afrocritik, to stay informed as we continually prep aggregated editorial playlists for your consumption. The next one will compile the best tracks from weeks 12-15. Also, don’t miss out on the opportunity to get your own music featured on the playlists. Send an email to for further details on how to get your work considered.

With all the housekeeping taken care of, I present to you the fifteenth edition of the Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight which plays host to:

  • A Few Big Names: Lil Kesh & Young Jonn team up a bit differently from times past, but with the same level of creativity with “Feeling Funny,” Johnny Drille dropped “The Best Part” as well as details of his surprise marriage, we get a trio of big name features across Congolese rapper Ninho’s NI album; Omah Lay on “Bad,” Lil Baby on “Blue Story,” and Central Cee on “Eurostar” …


  • Unique Alternative Offerings: There was a lot of enjoyment to be had in a number of brilliant subversiveworks such as “In Your City,” “Ade,” and “Come Come” from the new Riverays EP Peek 2, “Chairman,” “Free the Boy,” and “Drum Money” off the Drum Money album by the genre-bending Ekiti Sound, “Sex, Violence, Suicide” and “Angels in Tibet” are still evergreen off Amaarae’s Fountain Baby


  • Boisterous Rap: Rap was well-represented this week bolstered by the likes of South African rapper Kash CPT whose new Love Letters album gives us a mix of R&B and Hip-Hop with “Falling For You,” “Slide,” “West Coast” and “Want You Back,” SGaWD’s flirtatious “Boytoy,” is also in the mix as well as the aforementioned selections from Ninho’s NI album…

These are just a handful of samples from the diverse selection waiting for you to peruse on the playlists you should see to the right of this page. If you have trouble with the playlists, feel free to find our profiles @Afrocritik on your music streaming service of choice and the playlists should show up there. I recommend you check out the albums named to find your own gems, too. Feel free to listen in the curated order or shuffle the playlist if you’re feeling adventurous. Either way, be sure to give the songs time to work their magic on you.
