#BPPlaylist: 10 epic Afro dance songs to groove to this Saturday night

Ready, set, dance! It’s the first Saturday of September and Lord knows we are looking forward to celebrating it the way with family, friends, a bottle in hand and some dance steps.

Seriously, is there anything better in the whole world than vibing in a club – or your kitchen – with a group of friends who won’t hesitate to bust it down on the dance floor? We think not.

What’s the plan this first Saturday of September? Stepping out in grand style? Playing it cool with a few friends and beers at home? Or maybe a soft life hangout at your neighbourhood pub? Whatever your choice, you need to set the mood with some good dance tunes- something to set the mood for the month. That’s where our 10-song playlist comes in.

While you sort out the drinks and small chops, we’ll bring you the hot tracks that’ll burn up a good dance fever. We’ve got pop, house music and a dash of amapiono in the mix. Hit play on these bangers and you’re ensured to get in the party state of mind any place you are.

1. Corona – The Rhythm of the Night

The only infection you’ll be getting from this Corona is Dance Fever. This classic dance tune is one of those songs that just gets you stepping. Play this as you get ready to step out and it’ll put that party pep on your walk.

2. VIP – Ahomka Wo Mu

Feeling nu y3 deep! Look, this was from the Golden Age of VIP and you know these were the Ghana boys that made music for the party that never stops. Cue this track and start winding yourself up. It’s going to be a great night.

3. Jay Hover – One Leg

The song that got everyone on TikTok stepping. Flip this tune on to ginger your body up.

4. Asake – Peace Be Unto You (PBUY)

A club banger that’s also a Prayer? Asake burnt the record with this hot one. If you ever needed motivation to live life to the fullest then here you go.

5. Stonebwoy – Kpo K3k3 ft. Medikal, DarkoVibes, KelvynBoy & Kwesi Arthur

This pre-covid banger was the song of that took us through December. In the words of Stonebwoy himself, “We go chop life. We go make happy.” And that’s the affirmative way to turn up this weekend.

6. R2Bees – Eboso

A mix of the old and the new served hot is what Eboso is all about. R2Bees always chart their way with intentional tracks and this one was made just for the dancer in you. Don’t slack. This weekend deserves a back to basics turn up.

7. Rema & Selena Gomez – Calm Down

Just as it ebbs, sometimes it has to flow and the refix of Rema’s Calm Down does just that. You’ve shaken your bum bum now it’s time to calm down a bit as you sip your drink. Feel the mellow tunes of this track as it gets you ready to fire up again.

8. Daliwonga – Abo Mvelo ft. Mellow & Sleazy, MJ

Silky vocals. Silkier lyrics? Daliwonga’s voice is a gift. And not even your waist can deny that. Get ready to shake that body.

9. Zlatan Ibile – Cho Cho ft. Davido, Mayorkun

This song sounds like a heart pumping nothing but Redbull. Energy on 100 and that’s what your weekend needs.

10. Mellow & Sleazy – Bopha

Bopha; the undisputed amapiano banger for 2022 thus far. It’s going to be a great night the moment this song comes up. Enjoy.
