Koded! Is the new wave of Afrobeat hailing from Australia. The track centres itself around the story of a woman who is playing hard to get but knows in her heart she enjoys the antics and attention from her male counterparts. Mike Akox leads the story with an introduction to a woman named ‘Vida’ who he is trying to ‘vibe’ with. Mean while Kaynana weaves in for a quick chant and then dips back in to treat us to a full feature as he beats his chest showing that he is the alpha male! Freaktaste is the wizard of Oz in this instance as he is the man behind the curtain pulling the strings. (DOWNLOAD)

Understand the law of energy(chakras), law of vibration and governing your surrounds is key. Akosua Peprah is not telling you what you want to hear, but what you NEED to hear and the hidden truths of manifestation. (more…)
Nirvana Nokwe’s New EP Nirvous Love Is a Sensual Exploration of Self
Multifaced musical force Nirvana Nokwe has released her much awaited EP Nirvous Love, a soulful 6-track project stamping the budding artist’s credentials as an auteur of immersive and affecting music.
Stream/Download Nirvous Love here: https://paradise.fanlink.to/
Featured on the cover of Apple Music’s new releases Nirvous Love is an EP that brings one’s soul on a voyage of discovery: a story of love and awakening. Being self-aware due of the replicated dynamics of destruction, betrayal and hurt created in childhood, Nirvana explores the vindictive streak to attaining the love we all deserve.
With singles such as “2 Woke 4 Love” and “Waiting” laying the foundation, Nirvana delivers a cohesive and slyly eclectic body of work, rooted in retro, indie rock, Zulu drums, gqom and amapiano sounds, along with her ear-tingling vocal melodies and themes that dig into varying facets of the human condition.
“This project is a language in how we define and predict love. I hope everyone can find solace and healing and be relieved from the shackles of control and being controlling. This project is the blueprint of a genre I’m pioneering called Cosmic. Definitely something many may call sonic cinema, explains Nirvana.
Nirvana’s storytelling is intimate, truthful and, quite literally, out of this world with her ethereal sounds and deep passions for astrology. Her personal brand encapsulates the modern-day intellectualised dreamer, reflecting on the complexities of life and her place in the world.
While she is Johannesburg born, she identifies more with her years in KwaMashu and Lamtonville, Durban. Her family is rooted in the arts, making it possible for Nirvana to have participated in the entertainment industry at 4-years-old as a professional. By the age of 10, Nirvana understood what she was doing in entertainment and concluded that she wanted to continue pursuing a career in the arts.
“Nirvana’s latest release shows the diversity, future thinking and artistic integrity she has developed over her career. With massive support from stores such as Apple Music, it’s clear that she has a lot to offer and we’re excited to hear what’s yet to come,” expresses Mike Kelly Label Manager at Paradise.
A creative, a performer, trained singer, actress, producer, fashion model and filmmaker. These are some of the titles that can be attributed to Nirvana Nokwe. The 26-year-old hailing from Jozi is one independent to watch for.
