UK artist Afrikan Boy returns with an exhilarating, instant booty-shaker track “Wot It Do” where we see him dancing and rapping along with his army in various chromatic settings. The neck-breaking speed of the beats and anthemic choruses deliver a wacky groove that possesses your adrenalines. Watch below:

“Everyone puts their reality out through various screens and we all crop out elements of things we don’t want to send out to the world,” shared Afrikan Boy. “The concept grew from the expression to create something a little rough around the edges whilst still being smooth.”

Olushola Ajose is the mastermind behind Afrikan Boy who has previously collaborated with M.I.A. “Wot It Do” is his first collab with producers Jan Blumentrath and David Alexander (Pearls NEgras, Yo Majesty). As of now, Afrikan Boy is working on his upcoming album, which will be released in 2018. He has a show date coming up in March:

3/28 – The Lexington (London, UK)
