Known for nur­tur­ing tal­ent and bring­ing artists free-spir­ited cre­ativ­ity to the fore­front of the masses is for­ward-think­ing ‘cul­turepren­eur’ KJ Spio, a ​​Plat­in­um & Gold selling artists man­ager, deliv­er­ing ‘East Meets West Africa’ his pride and love for Africa is unmatched.

A first of its kind album ‘ East Meets West Africa’, exec­ut­ive pro­du­cer KJ has taken the top artists from West Africa and East Africa for fea­tures and pro­duc­tion, blend­ing Bongo Flava and Afrobeats for an explos­ive album, push­ing the bound­ar­ies and future of Afric­an music to a new level.

Lead track ‘Need You Now’ fea­tures Har­mon­ize and Blaq Jerzee, a roman­ti­cised afro­pop offer­ing with an eclect­ic arrange­ment of sounds and instru­ments com­ple­ment­ing the smooth har­mon­ising vocals.

The 6 track album also fea­tures the already released ‘Sokoma’ which the music video can be watched exclus­ively via CEEK, as well as ‘6 AM’, the two com­bined have 5 mil­lion streams and gained recog­ni­tion across edit­or­i­al playl­ists such as ‘Afric­an Heat’.

Full of ‘Bongo Flava’ com­bined with ‘Afrobeat’ and a hint of ‘Amapi­ano’, this hybrid fusion is what ‘East Meets West Africa’ is all about break­ing down bar­ri­ers with some of the most influ­en­tial artists and pro­du­cers on the con­tin­ent; it’sa truly pion­eer­ing step for the scene.
