We have a few songs that have been sitting on our servers for a while now and we need to showcase them for our readers instead of holding onto them. They will be presented as in, buts rest assured most of them are great records.
I did a copy and paste on the press release from Hopiho.
“By the age of 15, Hopiho (Pascal Ouandji), a native of Cameroon, was already stringing together verses inspired by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs and 2pac. Done with high school, Hopiho flew to Canada to pursue his undergraduate studies at the University of Ottawa. It was there that he formed the group 8e Art with fellow hip hop and R&B artistes: Fluggy, Marco Brown, Oriki and Hermes. Revolutionary and eclectic, 8e Art would go on to have resounding success in the Ottawa region.
A true showman, Hopiho has shared the stage with the likes of Magic system, Mokobe, Busta Flex, Saian Supa Crew amongst others. A perfectionist, Hopiho has been delaying the launch of his album Le Chant du Cygne for some time, as in his words, he “is not entirely satisfied with the final product.” After several years of hard work, promises that “the album will be released in 2012”. Success is imminent, for sure.

Since i don’t speak French, i cant reallly talk about the content of this track, but there is alot of name dropping going on Eto, i guess
naming all the Cameroonian stars or something. But Beyond that Hopio – or Pascal is Cameroonian artiste based out of Nairobi trying to practice he’s craft in Nairobi. Beyond that i will be honest and say there is noting groundbreaking about this track more like a spin or bin it.
For this week, mixtape Fridays, I wanted to showcase the Top 5 records in Africa as tallied by Radio Express “The African Chart”.
According to the website, “The Africa Chart creates a context for African pop performers to compete directly with world renowned artists for chart supremacy. Fed by reports from dozens of leading radio stations across Africa, the chart encourages international support of Africa’s best”.
The chart has tons of tracks from worldwide artists, but we will only feature the tracks from Africa . Big Ups to P-Unit for having the # 1 record in Africa with “KaRe”
For the week of September 25, 2010, the top 5 records in Africa were
1. P-Unit – KaRe (Kenya)
2. Freshly Ground – Fire Is low (South Africa)
3. 2Face – Only Me (Nigeria)
4. Mad Traxx – Get Down (Kenya)
