about

FOKN Bois never saw themselves doing Afropop because of it’s generally lovey dovey subject matter and controversial name but here they are. We are laughing with them on their new 7-Track EP “Afrobeats LOL”.

“Our new EP is a collaboration with the emergent Hiplife scene like Mr Eazi, Medikal, Sister Deborah, Dex Kwasi and also high-life icon Gyedu Blay Ambolley”

I am leaving
On a jet plane
Don’t know when I will be back again
Actually I know when I’ll be back
Just don’t want to think about that
It’s time for me to enjoy
Chillin with my girls
And my homeboys

Huh
And yor homeboy pull up in a Rolls Royce
True or false?
Well I cross out false so there’s no choice
And my import business get the hoes moist
I just land from Dubai with the folks choice
And I might pick shorty from the chow joint
Mek she base for ma crib like my low voice
Next week we go land in Benin
We go try booze boys
We don’t plan to be seen
If I don’t dey g

Coz I drink mek nice
Wey e ass too be mean

Before I break down I want hike for Cape Town
Den try figure out what the hell be Afrikaans
I make plans to climb Table Mountain for lap dance
But to go SA without visa I afri-cant !
Chale flying within the continent is oh so dear
Resorts are all full of expats so we don’t go there
So where??

Yes of course I just wan chill (das right)
Big bottos I just wan drill (catch flight)
Chop n chop until my fill (my appetite)
Imodium chock in case I’m ill
