The wonderful Mista Silva gives us the lowdown on his top pick of Afrobeats jams as well as serenading us with Summer’s new anthem ‘Green Light’
Summer is pretty much officially here and the warmer months of 2013 seem almost like a distant memory.
Last year Artists such as D’Banj and Stylo G infiltrated our airwaves with their commercial blend of what has felt like an under-appreciated Calypso and Soca sound. Both artists received an abundance of mainstream success, regulary featured on the Official Chart so it reminded us that there are a tonne of UK artists providing the world with their own unique flavour of the genre. London’s very own Mista Silva is a prime example of this so we decided to sit down the man himself and get his lowdown on a couple of his ultimate Afrobeat tracks.
1. Burna Boy – ‘Tonight’
2. Wande Coal ft. Burna Boy – ‘Amorawa’ (Prod By LeriQ)
3. Sarz – ‘Beat of Life (Samba)’ ft. Wizkid
4. R2Bees ft. Wizkid - ‘Slow-Down’
5. Mafikizolo – ‘Khona’ (Uhuru Mix)
Mista Silva ‘Green Light’ ft. Syron
