Following his Summer hit ‘Watch Nobody’, Ghanaian afrobeats singer Atumpan teams up with the UK’s very own grime superstar Big Narstie on brand new single ‘We Like It‘ (14/10), produced by Mixmaster Garzy.
Whilst Atumpan takes us to West Africa with Azonto and Shoki dance melodies from Ghana and Nigeria, interlaced with Caribbean dance slang, Big Narstie lights it up with South London cockney slang and even spits some Igbo and Twi lines on his verse.
The two performed the single at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals on the BBC 1Xtra stage, and also at Notting Hill Carnival via the Rampage and Mastermind stages.
After emerging in 2013 onto the UK Afrobeats scene with his huge hit single ‘The Thing’ (Ministry of Sound), Ghanaian musician Atumpan started picking up wider attention and has steadily been building a reputation across Europe with his subsequent singles ‘Baby Mama’ and ‘African Whine’ respectively.
His recent single ‘Watch Nobody‘ was supported by Ras Kwame, DJ Abrantee, Tim Westwood, DJ Edu and Toddla T. The track featured British actress and Grime artist Paigey Cakey and was produced by North London’s Delirious.
