Hola mpinji! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection...

KING RAP - Midi (Tell Me) (1990)

Tusk/Diamond/WEA, TUH 12
Producer: Darryl Heilbrunn & Neil Kuny
Engineer: G Chessman & Henry (King Rapp)


Another glimpse into the future of SA pop, King Rap (aka Joe Nina) discarded most afro/bubblegum sounds and turned to Eurobeat and New Edition-styled R&B pop for influence, the end result baring more than a passing resemblance to their Tusk labelmates Marcalex. Highlights here include "For real" and "Don't shoot" (sounds more like "Don't shout"). Other titles like "Shake Your Body", "Dance" and "Peace and Love" speak for themselves.
