Recently, music collaborations between African artists (from different countries and regions) have greatly increased, especially collaborations between West-South (Africa) and West-East (Africa). Platforms such as Coke Studio Africa have also made collaborations easier.
However, there are some yet-to-be-made collaborations that we’d love to see come to life. We’ve compiled a list of such collaborations.
Maurice Kirya and Asa
The two artists have a soul-deep style of music that gives the listener a soothing feeling. A musical collaboration between Uganda’s Maurice and Nigeria’s Asa would sure make an amazing soul-filled blend of music.
Mafikizolo and Sauti Sol
Although both music groups have worked on a song (alongside five other artistes) for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, they have not exactly had a track of their own.
South Africa’s Mafikizolo and Kenya’s Sauti Sol have achieved so much in the afrobeats niche. A high-tempo afrobeats dance song would most likely be the resulting effect of a collab’ between them.
Khaled and Diamond Platnumz
Despite the continent-wide musical collaborations that are being made daily, Northern African artists have had relatively low musical collaborations with artists from other parts of the continent.
Pairing Algeria’s legendary raï singer (and “C’est la vie” crooner), Khaled with East Africa’s Bongo Flava artist, Diamond Platnumz will not only see a combination of two genres of music fused together but also, a fusion of two artists who have achieved a lot in their respective careers.
Other collaborations we’d love to see include South Africa’s Uhuru and Togo’s Toofan (Afrobeats/dance) as well as Ghana’s Stonebwoy and Uganda’s Bebe Cool (Reggae/Dancehall)
