It feels like an eternity ago now. Somewhere by the middle of last month, I had carefully planned a run of playlists with the fourth slated for Wednesday…two weeks ago. The day I started to execute was on the fateful May 25th. If I had to narrow down the type of hip-hop records I like...Continue reading
And here comes my bow tie to May 2019. I had a great rush in compiling three playlists to present to you in a three-day span — though, I don’t look forward to repeating the experience so often 😅. As we get into the thick of summer, I will enthusiastically nudge you to listen to...
Much like when “One Love” came out, I won’t need much convincing to start off with Fally Ipupa and his latest single, “Jus d’orange”. And you’re in for quite a trip here as we celebrate some amazing voices such as Fally, Sam Smith, Ruby (of Tanzania) and (yes!) Bryan Adams.

The DJ is mOma. I’ve already gushed about his prowess on the 1s & 2s a couple of times. However, I failed to mention his range. My bad! A couple of years back, mOma put out an 80-mins-long mix of smooth, at times suggestive, R&B that would have warmed many chilly nights. A couple months...Continue reading
