Now that spring is finally here, video blogger Ikenna Azuike has made us the ultimate April playlist.
The creator of African comedy news show What’s Up Africa has complied tracks from artists including Magic System, Oliver Mtukudzi, Sam Mangwana and Mayra Andrade that are guaranteed to get you in a good mood. But before you hit play, Ikenna has a message for you:
“Important instructions before listening to this month’s What’s Up Africa playlist: turn up the volume, loosen up your hips, clear the room and grab your hairbrush. Why? Because you’re guaranteed to be in the mood to party, dance and daydream about sun kissed beaches and African skylines when you listen to it. From Ivory Coast to Angola and Zimbabwe, I’ve picked a few gems for you to jam to, enjoy guys!” –Ikenna
If you are new to Spotify, it’s a free music streaming service available in the US, Europe and Australia that you can download here.
