Bottom-Wiggling: African Music

There is a lot of good music coming from the continent of my birth, and it deserves a wider audience.

Sauti Sol are the biggest not-boyband in Kenya and their Sura Yako is guaranteed to get bottoms wiggling:

They also have contemplative moments, such as their Kuliko Jana:

Fuse ODG is a Ghanaian-Brit who is doing all the good things. Listen to everything he does. But for joyful video, Dangerous Love is excellent, despite the cameo from Sean Paul:

Bottom wiggling, after a certain increase in scale of magnitude, can become hazardous.

Take appropriate action.

Shake what your mama gave you, Virgil!

Mach mentioned Koffi Olomide on t'other thread, and it is true that he has some excellent tunes. One of my favourites is Effrakata:

Shake it like this, virg. Good for losing a few stones.

For moderate shakes.

I am unfamiliar with "moderate" when it comes to bottom-wiggling.

Just saying sometimes it's best to have collapsible furniture that can be stacked away from the dance floor.

Pixiedust - 17 Mar 2019 15:10:02 (#12 of 416)

No need to attack the furniture, you can bottom-wiggle in place, as shown by the Nairobi Chamber Choir:

Where was it shot? There wasn't a single tanned audience member.

Pixiedust - 17 Mar 2019 15:19:46 (#14 of 416)

Probably at Muthaiga, which does actually have melanated members.

AlanII - 17 Mar 2019 16:25:46 (#15 of 416)

Lovely sound.

Cute video in #3

Davido is Nigerian, but is incredibly popular across the continent and recently sold out in the UK. This is one of his most popular tunes:

Another Fuse ODG tune, this time causing disruption on the Circle Line:

There's already an African music thread on here somewhere. Anyway, I give you https://www.awesometapes.com/ which is one of the best music sites on the internet.
