Zambian Chanda Mbao just dropped the impressive video for his connection with Dancehall artiste Kaladoshis titled My Town. The song represents the current movement within African Urban music as the lines between Hip Hop and Pop become ever more blurry. On the song Chanda adopts an incredibly simplistic AB type flow that is akin to the most basic of pop songs. I have been noticing number of artists particularly rappers, adopting such styles and flows in recent songs – chief among which is Ice Prince. I am not the biggest fan of this particular brand of popification but its what radio loves rght now, so the trend will continue.
The DJ Lo directed video is stunning as it utilises aerial shots to help show off Lusaka’s beauty.
