Africa would like to acknowledge young up
and coming African artist who are enhancing
the genre of African music options by infusing
a mix of soulful R&B with African Highlife
and Afro rhythm beats. Some of the artist
include Mzbel from Ghana, 2-Face from Nigeria,
Plicado from Liberia, and P-Square also from
Nigeria. These artists are taking the African
entertainment and nightlife landscape by storm
and can no longer be dismissed as "inexperienced
youth". Here is a sample of African videos
posted on YouTube, enjoy....

has won Liberia Image Award for R&B/Hip
Hop artist, and Best Video "Liberian
Girl" from the Liberian Entertainment
Dust ("This Country dat Technique")
Bone Dust is a local Liberian youth artists
who appeals to the youth and sings what they
can relate to. The song is called "Technique."
The word Technique as used here is an everyday
Liberian street vernacular that means "scam."
As they say, "so so technique ya ma, don't
believe it, that 419." In essence the song
suggests that everything that some people are
up to in Liberia is nothing but technique. Some
of the girls are technique, the big shots are
technique, those want-to-be high rollers are
technique, the NGOs are technique in their fine
cars and "can't see" the daily hardships.
Africa's intent for showcasing this video is
not to make a political statement, but instead
to bring our readers attention to what the youth
are saying and thinking, and how they communicate
those thoughts through music. Listen to the
words of this song and don't dismiss it. Liberia
can no longer afford to dismiss our youth. Other
than that, leave your comfort zone for a moment
and just enjoy the song and what the artists
is trying to convey...
