Last month, Kenyan Afropop band, Sauti Sol followed up their Patoranking-assisted jam, “Melanin” — the first single off their ingenious new LP, Afrikan Sauce — with the lovely “Girl Next Door” featuring Tiwa Savage.
The releases are part of the band’s unconventional album release involving the unveiling of the project’s tracks over a twelve-month period — featuring top artists from all across Africa. Keeping to their word, they just dropped the third single and video in as many months: “Afrikan Star” featuring another Nigerian superstar in Burna Boy.
“Afrikan Star” is excellently produced by Sauti Sol and finds all the men on the track singing about trying to win over a beautiful girl.
Watch the Mex-directed video for “Afrikan Star” above.
