Selasi Duse

Ace music producer and uber talented ‘African kid’, Selasi Duse is the sound genius behind many of your favourite artistes (Akon, Keysha Cole, Trey Songz etc). But, he has turnt up the heat on his new album Shades of Grey. The single “Ups and downs - Tie masem” is a fusion of contemporary African beats grounded in hip hop.

Ara - Brymo

They call him ‘Brymo’ but Ibrahim Ashimi Olawale is the artiste behind hits like Oleku, Good morning and the eclectic crowd-pleaser Ara. In the local Yoruba language, Ara means wonders and it just catapulted Brymo to limelight. The hit is off the highly acclaimed sophomore album Son of a carpenter. Kudos to Chocolate city for scooping such talent to their label.
