There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.
Diamond Platnumz – “Sound” ft. Teni
Tanzanian hitmaker, Diamond Platnumz has collaborated with a number of Nigeria’s biggest artists – from Davido on “Number One” to Tiwa Savage on “Fire” – and for his latest single, “Sound”, he enlisted another Nigerian star, Teni.
On the track, Diamond Platnumz makes his intentions clear from the jump: He wants listeners to get up and dance. As he lists off some of the decade’s biggest African dance moves, the song’s infectious beat makes it impossible to stay still.
While Teni doesn’t steal the show as she typically does, her contribution is still felt. Not that we still need any convincing, but “Sound” is further proof that Diamond Platnumz is one of Africa’s most consistent and far-reaching afropop stars.
