Two laidback slices of summer on the hottest day of 2017 so far.

British-Nigerian afrobeats singer Moelogo has released two new singles ahead of his third EP. The lilting soul of ‘Shine Your Light’ is all gentle guitar, flutes and finger-snaps, while ‘Sometimes I Pray’ – which features South London rapper and singer Tiggs Da Author – balances thoughtful sentiments with an irresistible, dreamy vibe.

The pair of singles trail a forthcoming EP, also titled Shine Your Light. It’s the follow-up to last year’s Ìréti EP, which gave us the brilliant bass stabs and bird noises of the huge anthem ‘Penkélé’ (later remixed by Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and Nigerian megastar Davido).

Listen to ‘Shine Your Light’ and ‘Sometimes I Pray’ below.
