After last month’s afro cosmic disco funk special with Dj Gioumanne, African hip hop radio is back with the October edition filled with new joints, exclusives and another guest mix. We were joined by Chief Boima, the multi-talented dj/producer/author/researcher from USA with Sierra Leone roots who is currently touring Europe. Impressed with his recent ‘Pungwe’ mixtape for Tenda Maraire (Shabazz Palaces), J4 asked Boima to spin some tunes collected throughout his travels around the world, and enlighten us on the hip hop scenes in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

In the first hour J4 brings in new tracks by Robaa (Kalamashaka), K’naan, Matador, Bamboo, Ruyonga (aka Krukid), MCK and there’s even time for a few kuduro tracks, inspired by the recent Os Kuduristas event. The ambiance during this show was further lightened up by drunk Manchester City and Ajax football supporters who were being chased outside the studio window by the riot police.
