I think it’s safe to say Sampa the Great is one of my favourite musical artists, She really knows how to beautifully merge rock, blues and funk with traditional African sounds. Our banger is titled “Energy” and it was released in 2018 as a single, I’ve been hooked to it ever since I discovered it. From the hummings when it starts to Sampa’s self-assured and poised raps that allow us to see glimpses of Sampa the poet.
Female energy, one shot two shot three times sorrowsEnergy, Sampa the Great
Carry all the weight of the world on your shoulders
Give a couple crowns to the women who had bore us
Taught us focus, love and support us
On “Energy” Sampa features visual artist, filmmaker and poet, Nadeem Din-Gabisi. Listen to our banger below:
