Video: Zion – No Wahala

In Afrobeats by Nick Russell

One of the hottest new names out of the UK afrofusion soundscape is South Londoner Zion, who’s just dropped a dope new track, by the name of No Wahala. It’s already hit 200,000 Spotify streams and shows a lot of promise for the young artist! Fans of afrobeat will recognize the sample, which has borrowed Ivorian group Magic System‘s classic tune ‘1er Gaou’.

Describing the track, Zion explained how  “Something about the drums and melodies used in that song was just magical to me, so I really wanted to incorporate it in what I was doing musically.”
