Best New Music: Featuring Banky W & Focalistic

Banky W – Final Say

Following the birth of Banky W and Adesua’s child, which they announced to the public on Adesua’s birthday, Banky W releases the first single of his forthcoming sixth studio album, The Bank Statements. 

The song takes on a gospel undertone, as Banky W sings about God having the final say on things. Talking about the single and the birth of his child, Banky W talked about not knowing “what you’re praying or hoping for, but I do know that God is still in the business of answering prayers, and if you can trust Him… nothing is impossible.”

Final Say was co-written by Banky Wellington and Henry Enebili, and produced Cobhams Asuquo.

Focalistic Feat. Davido Vigro Deep – Ke Star Remix

The rise of Amapiano out of South Africa, spreading around not just the continent but becoming a global sound, showing the beauty and depth of South Africa’s electronic sounds and scene, has been been impossible to ignore.

Taking life in different countries, the sound has been jokingly nicknamed “omopiano” in Nigeria as Nigerian artists hop on the sound and in some cases blend it with Afrobeats, from Davido’s I Got A Friend to Buju’s  So Lovely and Rexxie and Mohbad’s KPK (Ko Por Ke). Asides these hits, Amapiano also birthed Kabza De Small’s Sponono which featured Wizkid and Burna Boy and Cassper Nyovest.

Focalistic’s Ke Star blew up in South Africa with its catchy lyrics “spetlele, spetlele (Spetlele), Starta ketlele (Ketlele), Angle, Angle (Angle), Ao, tlisa re settlele (settlele) & Yho yho yho yho yho yho, Tsikitsiki yho, tsikitsiki yho, tsikitsiki yho”.

For the remix to his hit single Ke Star, which was off his 2020 album; Sghubu Ses Excellent, South African rapper Focalistic employs Davido, one of Africa’s biggest hit makers. From Davido’s adlibs to his catchy verse over Vigro’s breezy production, he provides new energy and a freshness to the song.
