Music Inspired By Coming 2 America, ‘Rythms of Zamunda’ is the upcoming 16-track album featuring Tiwa Savage, Prince Kaybee, Diamond Platnumz, Fally Ipupa, Nasty C, Sha Sha, Tekno and many others.
The music project is reportedly set to drop when the highly anticipated sequel premieres on Amazon Prime on March 5th this year, three decades after the first iconic film.
Speaking about the album, CEO of Universal Music South Africa and Sub-Saharan South Africa, Sipho Dlamini, said the following:
“We wanted to bring our knowledge of the music from the continent that is coming up and affecting the youth globally — it’s not just Afrobeat…Much like the movie is about America on one side and Africa, we could draw on the African genres you would expect but you also have R&B, hip-hop, house and so forth. ‘Black and White’ is a great example. It sounds like it could have been made in a studio in the U.S., and it’s a collaboration with an American artist, but Nasty C is as African as it gets.”
South African Nomzamo Mbatha joins the old cast of favourites, Eddie Murphy, Shari Headly, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and John Amos as a royal groomer called Mirembe. There are also rumours of an appearance by Afrobeats superstar Davido.
