Cape Verdean music maestro Assi pops on our radar with a new track titled “Mata Batida.” He looked deep into the bowels of Africa, picking Tanzania’s Rayvanny as a feature.
There’s nothing novel about his choice of Rayvanny, an African, though. The reason is simple enough: This isn’t the first time he is working with an Africa. Back in 2018, he had featured the Congo’s BM on a song titled “Gwara Nao Para.”
By the way, the featured artiste Rayvanny was on Krizbeatz’s “Aminah,” alongside Reekado Banks, in April this year. But for a string of feature appearances, Rayvanny has been mostly quiet this year.
“Mata Batida,” the song on which he is co-opted, comes with a music video directed by Kenny for Zooom Production.
