By Yinoluwa Olowofoyeku

Welcome back, listeners! I know last week’s selection really threw you for a loop. That’s what you sign up for adventuring with me. If you missed last week’s playlist, do not worry. The first four playlists will be compiled into a super playlist for your perusal after this week’s edition. Be sure to follow us on our socials @Afrocritik so you don’t miss out on that.

Today, I bring to you a more restrained collection of hidden gems from all across Africa and her Diaspora. I’m hopeful you have been unearthing valuable gems across your expedition with us. Remember, if you want a chance to get your own diamonds in the rough spotlighted as well, send an email to for further details.

Without further ado, I present to you the fourth edition of the Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight. Sit back, relax, and embark on this week’s journey, which happens to feature:

  • Some Big Names: Joeboy whets our album appetites with “Duffel Bag,” Oxlade makes a rousing guest appearance on Michaël Brun’s “Clueless,”“In The Garden” and “No Competition” are new love-tinged faves off Davido’s unstoppable Timeless LP, Ayra Starr teams up with Darkoo for “Disturbing U”…
  • Soulful Renditions: T’neeya gave us an R&B gem with “Monsta Alta,” Keziah Mallam and RnB Princess claim their crowns on Beezyx’s “Royalty,” Preyé waxes sweetly about her “Cotton Candy,” Tasha Mac makes sure you “Don’t Tell Nobody,” Sjava melts hearts and ears with “Thixo”…


  • Diverse Takes On Folk Music: ToumaniDiabate enlists OumouDiarra for “Time,” Msaki&Tubatsi Mpho Moloi join forces for“”Subaleka,” Elida Almeida does her thing with “Dondona,” we remember The Cavemen’s masterpiece “Adaugo” …
  • Hard-Hitting Rap: “Stain My White” is the standout off Kola Williams & Moti Cakes’ joint RedtapeEP, “S.B.B” is a braggadocious cut from BLNDE, Boi Supreme shows his pedigree on “Five Star,” Gingsen ruffles feathers on “Upsetter,” “Sauce Thief” sees Bolaryn addressing the fakes …

All these highlights and more are available for your perusal and enjoyment on the playlists you should see to your right. You’ll also find some of my favourite hold-overs from last week.
