Mozambique’s DJ Tárico, Nelson Tivane and Preck, best known as the Amapiano collective, Yaba Buluku Boyz deliver another panoramic shot of what African music should be – a melange of its rich culture and Zimbabwe’s Jah Prayzah is the perfect musician to make their energetic new cut, ‘Wa Kula’.
If there’s one thing the Yaba Buluku Boyz have gained popularity for, it’s breaking into big spaces despite debuting from a relatively tiny corner of the continent. Like Mount Rushmore, so too does the trio plan on etching their sound into Africa with the help of pan-African label, Geobek Records. Through mega-hit collaborations with continental heavyweights like Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Iyanya, DJ Consequence and more, the trio promotes African values of unity and cultural diversity. “Wa Kula” is the latest release from the Yaba Buluku Boyz since the success of their Yemi Alade-assisted record ‘Tell Somebody’.
With their latest single, ‘Wa Kula’ (Growing Up), featuring Zimbabwean star Jah Prayzah, they show love to a united Africa again. Supported by South Africa’s Amapiano soundscape, the Yaba Buluku Boyz and Jah Prayzah wax lyrical about their journey from the streets to continental stardom. True to the ethos of the Boyz, the song demands all persons, regardless of cultural background, unite in song and dance.
