SISTAH IMINAH BRINGS FIRE WITH NEW AFROBEATS SINGLE ‘KILONSELE’- on behalf of black Americans who identify as African.
Sistah Iminah has a message for Africa. She describes herself as a born again African. Some may laugh, but she means that quite literally.
Her debut Afrobeats single, KILONSELE, speaks specifically to the journey of African Americans and Caribbeans who choose to return to their African culture, traditions and identity. In the aftermath of enslavement & colonialism should they be welcomed back home to their roots or made to create new realities as foreign fruits? Are they African or nah?
KILONSELE is both a question and answer, delivered with smooth lyrics and a powerful message over a hypnotic rhythm produced by djembefola and ethnomusicologist Madiou Diouf. Released on the birthday of Fela Kuti and founding of the Black Panther Party, KILONSELE is now available on all digital media outlets, brought to you by Iminah Edutainment.
