On the Beam collab “Kilimanjaro”, Nigerian Afropop star Nonso Amadi captures the stress-free escapism of a holiday. “‘Kilimanjaro’ is a very calm track,” he tells Apple Music. “We made that in Cotonou, Benin, and I remember just feeling like, ‘Oh, this is very serene.’ It feels like how beautiful Cotonou is. There's a lot of trees; it's very calm out there. Beam came and his flow really, really matched well for this song. I think his verse is phenomenal. It's for the girls. It's a very smooth track.” Listen to “Kilimanjaro” on Africa Now, the playlist that brings together the sounds of the continent, from hip-hop, highlife, Afrobeats and alté to house, Afrobongo and kuduro—and if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
