Welcome once again, brave listener! I’m assuming you’ve had a wonderful time with the selection from last week. I had so much fun putting that list together because of all the great albums I had to pick from. If you happen to miss last week’s Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight playlist, you can refer to the article on our website or wait for the next mega editorial list (follow us on our socials @Afrocritik to stay in the loop). Also, please remember to send an email to for further details on how to get your own work considered for the playlist.

This week, I present to you the seventh edition of the Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight which just so happens to be the longest playlist so far. This week, it was even more of a pleasure to fish for amazing music from all across Africa and her diaspora! While it’s not the most diverse list we’ve had, I think there’s an interesting selection in this week’s Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight for perusal this time around.

This week’s lengthy collection features:

  • Some Big Names:

    Mayorkun is back to releasing music with “For Daddy,” Ghana’s Stonebwoy finally gives us 5thDimension which is represented here by “More of You,” “Far Away,” and the Oxlade- and Tiwa Savage-assisted “Therapy,” Young Jonn delivers another stellar offering with “Aquafina,” Ayra Starr joins BOJ to give us “Line of Fire”…

  • Engaging Rap Entries:

    The rappers were on point this week, delivering the goods like DAP The Contract’s soulful “Purple Feels” off his upcoming PW3RS project, Kiddo CSA has “11 Hours to London,” “You’re Mine,” and “Window” representing his Worldwide Eye EP, Odumodublvck joins Laime on “Where Dem Dey,” and “God Abeg” is an energetic star-studded banger from Ghanaian mavericks Medikal, Joey B, Kwesi Arthur, and Kay-T …

  • Francophone Fire:

    Anglophone music travels really quickly but there’s a lot of quality in French going under the radar. Some examples would be Papi’s emotional “Patienter,” Rayo’s sultry “Aliyah,” Toofan’s boisterous “Mon largent,” Remy Adan’s “Une Derniere Fois” …

  • Impressive New Names:

    Kyla Blac flexes her vocal chops on “Problem,” “Resentment” and “These Dreams” showing what Shawn Maine has on offer on his When The Sun Sets EP, Both W3st and Lifash have songs called “Ella”, newcomer Tyler Vybe is figuring his sound out on “Simple,” Kaey goes soulful on “These Tables,”

  • Bouncy House Offerings:

    Jux, DJ Tarico and G Nako team up for the energetic “Shugga Daddy,” “Mnike” comes courtesy of DJ Maphorisa and a studded collab list, Mr. Eazi lends his talents to Choplife Soundsystem & Ami Faku on “Wena,” Darque enlists Sjava for “Mngani” off his forthcoming More Life project, Amapiano titans Kabza De Small & DJ Maphorisa team up with MaWhoo and Da Muziqal Chef for “Nduma Ndumane”…

All these highlights and more are waiting for you to give them a listen on the Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight playlist you should see to the right of this page. You’ll also find some of my favourite hold-overs from last week such as Sute Iwar’s “The Pleasure Principle” and Ramian’s “Phone Calls & Tequila.” Feel free to listen in the curated order or shuffle the Afrocritik Weekly Music Spotlight playlist if you’re feeling adventurous. Either way, give the songs time to work their magic on you.
