Hot of the presses, here are three brand new East African pop records for you. The first two come from a couple of old pals, Eddy Kenzo from Uganda and Teddy Afro from Ethiopia. Rounding things off we have Sauti Sol from Kenya - new to me although they have apparently been knocking about for ten years or so.
The message in Eddy's song is pretty clear, and one can hazard a guess as to what Teddy is saying. As for Sauti Sol, though, who knows?
"Royal" - Eddy Kenzo (featuring Patoranking)
"Korkuma Africa" - Teddy Afro
"Shake Yo Bam Bam" - Sauti Sol
Eddy is being helped out by Irish-Nigerian dancehall artiste Pat O'Rankin, which gives us all the excuse we need to feature this video from the similarly named Pat O'Banton (or as my lovely friend Pam calls him, Cousin Patrick).
