5. Burn My Cable – Ajebo Hustlers

6. Amina – Mavin Records

Probably the hottest music Roaster on the continent, Mavin’s full-length album hoards an elegantly composed brand of ambient Afro songs, blended with other genres, they birthed a groovy “Afro-piano” tune. You can’t hear “Amina” and not move.
