During his interview, Ebro Darden brought up the rapper’s sexual assault case and Black did not take it likely:

“With respect to everybody involved in that case, you know we can’t get into details today. But, you know, we take sexual assault here serious,” said Darden.  “We can’t get into details, but we hope to have you back so we can have a deeper conversation about that because it’s a serious topic.” 

Though Peter Rosenberg tried to change topics, the “ZeZe” artist looked visibly upset and Darden decided to cut things short. 

“You seem upset that I brought it up,” Darden tells Black.

“I feel like sometimes when n*ggas be going through sh*t, like, y’all be entertained by bullsh*t,” the rapper said. “Change the subject, or else I’m finna walk out.”

Darden then replied, “We don’t have to talk about nothing else, we can be done right here.” The Dying To Live rapper than exited the room.

The Rise of R&B Music in Africa



The Rise of R&B Music in Africa miixtapechiick Afrobeats, Amapiano, Gengetone

The world’s music industry has always been inspired by Africa, the continent of rich cultural heritage. In the African music scene, R&B is experiencing a significant comeback, despite the historical dominance of Afrobeats, Amapiano, Gengetone, and other genres. This is an exciting development for the continent.

Africa’s R&B scene is proof of African musicians’ uniqueness, versatility, and creativity. R&B has always been associated with romantic themes and soulful songs, but African musicians are giving the genre a distinctive new direction by incorporating elements of their own cultures and musical tastes.

Africa has a never-ending love for good R&B; South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Zambia, and Uganda have the highest R&B listenership on Spotify. Collaborations between international superstars and African musicians in the R&B genre are becoming more frequent than they were a decade ago, mostly due to this tremendous rise.

From the mesmerizing strains of “Big FU” by David Guetta, featuring Nigeria’s finest Ayra Starr, to the captivating melodies of “Sensational” by Chris Brown, Davido, and Lojay, and Travis Scott jumping on Tyla‘s “Water,” one of Africa’s breakout songs of 2023. Africa’s stars are shining bright on the world stage.

And now, African singers are also connecting with one another to release global hits all on their own.

Soulful vocals combined with modern production techniques, Afrobeat loops, and traditional African rhythms are being skillfully blended by musicians all throughout the globe. This blend produces a sound that not only resonates with listeners but also bridges the gap between the past and the present.

In Africa, R&B is growing in popularity more than ever. We see that the power of music transcends all borders, whether by location or generation, as this global journey spreads like wildfire.
