Walshy Fire Releases Highly Anticipated Debut Solo Album “ABENG”

Walshy Fire – ‘ABENG‘ – Walshy Fire, the MC of Major Lazer and producer and international DJ alike, gathers his friends from Africa and the Caribbean for his debut solo album ABENG, a first-of-its-kind album bridging the two regions, out now and streaming everywhere through Mad Decent. ABENG was inspired by the Jamaica-born, Miami-based DJ, producer and MC’s roots in the Caribbean dancehall scene, and his recent travels across Africa. The title ABENG refers to a horn instrument brought from Ghana to Jamaica and used by runaway slaves to communicate across long distances.

 



 

With Major Lazer, Walshy has regularly toured Africa over the last five years — travels which have allowed him to fulfill his dream of helping bridge the divide between Africa, the Caribbean, and the broader African diaspora. ABENG brings together some of the biggest names in Afrobeats and Afropop with top Dancehall, Soca and Reggae artists from the Caribbean for unique pairings of artists from each region across each track, like new single ‘Call Me‘ featuring Mr Eazi (Nigeria) and Kranium (Jamaica), lead single ‘No Negative Vibes‘ featuring Runtown (Nigeria) and Alkaline (Jamaica) and a remix of Walshy‘s debut single ‘Bend Down Pause‘ featuring Wizkid (Nigeria), Runtown and Machel Montano (Trinidad).

Other artists featured across ABENG include Ice Prince (Nigeria), Demarco (Jamaica), Masicka (Jamaica), Adekunle Gold (Nigeria), Nailah Blackman (Trinidad), Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania), Stonebwoy (Nigeria), Timeka Marshall (Guyana), Bunji Garlin (Trinidad), Ketchup (Nigeria), Shizzi (Nigeria), Efya (Ghana), WurlD (USA/Nigeria) and Christopher Martin (Jamaica).
