Boj and Tiwa Savage have linked up for ‘Your
Love (Mogbe)’, the first single from Moves
Recordings and Afro Nation
Festival’s forthcoming companion mixtape Afro Nation #1 due out in November.
A laid-back slice of
Afrobeats, ‘Your Love (Mogbe)’ features
Boj and Savage yearning for one another’s affections while warning
each-other of the consequences should they break up. The title of the track
features the Yoruba word ‘Mogbe’ which translates to ‘Drama’, emphasising the
love affair’s potential for turbulence.
Directed by acclaimed Director K who’s previously helmed
videos for Davido and Teni The Entertainer, the single is
accompanied by a simple but picturesque visual.
‘Your Love (Mogbe)’ follows
the release of Boj’s previous singles ‘Tunga’
and ‘Like 2 Party’ featuring
veteran British rapper Skepta which
combined have an excess of over 3
million streams on Spotify.
Meanwhile coming fresh off the heels of Tiwa
Savage’s ‘Keys To The Kingdom’ which appeared on ‘The Lion King’s’ official soundtrack ‘The Gift’ curated by worldwide superstar Beyonce.
The first release off
the Afro Nation #1 mixtape, the project is a celebration of the
festival’s enormous success earlier this year in Portugal. Celebrating
all things afrobeats, hip-hop, UK Rap, Reggae and Dancehall, the festival was
the first of its kind; an event unapologetically championing the African
diaspora’s vast culture and music.
Afro Nation Vol #1 will be the first in a
series of compilations curated by indie label Moves Recordings in collaboration with Afro Nation Festival. Moves
Recordings over the years have previously released music from some of
Africa’s most elite artists like Davido,
Naira Marley, WizKid, Mr Eazi and
A sensual track between
two of Afro Nation’s headliners, ‘Your Love (Mogbe)’ will help to
continue positioning Afro Nation and Moves Recordings as brands reflecting
the breadth of Africa’s thriving music industry.
