Another really well put together mix from oki-ni and MC Afrikan Boy, If you’ve not heard of Afrikan Boy, his story is pretty simple: one day he went to Lidl and then, quite a bit later, he found himself featuring on the latest M.I.A. album, being produced by Timbaland, and opening for Prince.
A London-born Nigerian, Afrikan Boy has his own cheeky and offbeat style, which comes through strongly in this mix. GBOSA is a playful blend of dub-reggae, house, afro-beat and dubstep. Listen and be entertained.
Afrikan Boy explains: ‘The mix was inspired mainly from dub reggae and house music. I put one of my tracks ‘kunta kinte’ in the mix, to bridge the gap between the afro beat, house and the reggae attitude.
“I did not want to put together a cheesy mix. Instead I went through my vinyl collection and chose songs I hadn’t listened to in a while!! Gbosa!’
