Pan African Rap: Didi B, Davaji & Cef Tanzy

Pan African Rap: Didi B, Davaji & Cef Tanzy

Also including new music from Manzi Fleur, Seketxe, Matata & Sema Solé

Each week Pan African Music scours the digital vaults for the latest and greatest rap from across the African continent and its diaspora. Drill, trap, grime, Afropop, amapiano, coupé-décalé, electro mahragan… all these sub-genres and interpretations make an appearance, attesting to hip-hop’s power to unite the world with indomitable flows and creative melodies. Rap is now the world’s music, and our pan-African selection is only scratching the surface. If it’s here, it means we think it bumps, and would be confident sharing it with hip-hop heads everywhere. We encourage you to do the same.

This week’s Pan African Rap roundup features the coupé-décalé rap of Didi B, hardcore Angolan drill from Cef Tanzy and Seketxé, feel-good vibes from Kenya’s Matata, head-bopping trap from Rwanda’s Manzi Fleur and Sema Solé and Davaji’s neo-soul drill banger.

Follow and share our Pan African Rap playlist on Spotify and Deezer for the entire selection.
