‘African Music’ included hit songs like “My Year,” “Party Mood,” “Ache For You,” “Kido,” “Majje,” and “African Music,” among others, and accumulated one million streams in less than a month on various streaming platforms.
Azawi’s track “Ten Over Ten” has been a chart-topper, solidifying her position in the music industry and paving the way for her upcoming album, ‘Sankofa,’ which is set to be a musical journey into memories and rhythms of life.
