Coming to us through the 24/7 buzz of Twitter, here’s a new (and as yet unmixed) demo track by Wale in which he pays homage to the time where his parents dragged him along to African parties.
Bunny Mack’s ‘Let me love you’ is indeed an African evergreen which slightly predates the tracks in our Nigerian rap update (1981). The Sierra Leone born singer lives on in the memories of three generations.
Bunny’s original was chopped up by producer Apple Juice Kid who must have got inspired by having produced a remix of K’naan’s TIA featuring Afrikanboy. We are looking forward to hearing the final version.
Listen to Wale’s ‘My Sweetie’:
And here’s the original:
