Flashy | Maleek Berry
A lot of people talk about Davido and Wizkid when it comes to the afrobeat genre, but I don’t think Maleek Berry is discussed enough. In addition to having his hand on production for some dope afrobeat songs, he also releases some mega hits of his own. Here we have yet another one. As soon as this song started playing, I knew it was about to be fire…and dammit, it was. There isn’t much that Maleek has touch that hasn’t turned to gold recently and I expect no different for this song. With afrobeat making its way to urban radio recently, I could see this song arriving faster than it’s been taking. It took a few years for them to catch on to Davido, “Fall” and a year later, they’re finally up on “Joanna.” I’ve already played the song several times since it was released and I’m looking forward to the next gathering I go to where this should hopefully be played. I’ve been saying for a while that the genre was about to make major waves and it has begun. Of all the songs released leading up to summer, this one may just be my fave across all the genres.
