Alhamdulillah – Lulu **Exclusive**


This track just landed in my  inbox, and i’m not even hesitating to post it, give it a listen there is something of a freshness to it.I  met Lulu before since he works in a studio on the 2nd floor. The first tracks i had from him were interesting but missing something – but i guess the kid been perfecting he’s craft and this track might just be a big hit.

Fally is not new on GetMziki or on the Internet – actually anyone who wants to befriend Fally just has to point his browser to his Facebook page here – Fally Ipupa on Facebook – he is an avid Facebook user and has a large fan base. Fally is one of those artists you just respect period – enough said. To collaborate with Olivia and produce this flashy video just brings African Urban music to a whole new entertainment space.

Olivia who apparently left G-Unit in 2008 after spinning hits with 50 Cent such as Best Friend. seems to have found some good spirits with the African star Fally Ipupa. Its rumored that Olivia is now signed to Universal and has an upcoming project titled Alone with You.

I wonder if she is going to dedicate this album to her new found love 🙂

Prince Zimboo – Lightswitch

I just had to do a post on Prince Zimboo – the story is that Prince Zimboo is from somewhere in Africa has 999 wives and is traveling the world to find wife  1000. But Prince Zimboo really is an alter ego of the Jamaican producer – Assaney Morris. The parody aside Prince Zimboo has very hilarious lyrics on Lightswitch – “woman, you may not look good in the day, but your beauty is only a light switch away”.
