Afrobeat star Sona releases new single ‘GINGER’

Ginger is the newly anticipated single from British-Nigerian Afrobeat musician Sona.

Following the release of his first single of the year, “Story” which was highly received, Sona has officially released the anticipated visuals to his single “Ginger” and as he says “he is ready to ginger”.

Sona released his debut single Summertime in 2013. Following on from this he then resurfaced with a treble release in early 2014 with singles Ijo Sona, No Wahala & Eyy Mama garnering over 2 million streams collectively. Sona also collaborated with Sneakbo on their song ‘Hurt Nobody’ which has almost 2million views.

He has since received massive airplay support from BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra and has also been recognized by BETKey UK and African based taste-makers have labelled Sona as a prospect to look out for in the year of 2017.
