Pour Me Water

There’s no denying that aficionados of Afro Pop vibes have been regaled this year. And the tap of Pon Pon rhythms is still turned on as artists from all over are still squeezing in potential hits this late into the year. Leading the charge are some of the earlier Pon Pon sound champions: Mr Eazi and Tekno. And it seems that Eazi even found a way to marry promotion with philanthropy.

Speaking of philanthropy, let’s salute the recently appointed UN Women goodwill ambassador, Viviane Chidid, for her fight to eradicate violence against women. A longtime advocate of gender equality (most notably through her music), the Senegalese songbird has vowed keep on breaking barriers. Next year, in celebration of International Women’s Day, Viviane (née N’Dour), the queen of Mbalax, becomes the second African Woman to headline at the mythical Le Zénith.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
