Makola (live) | The Waiting Room

Makolas roots lay in Finland and Ghana, where the duo have crafted a sound, forged in London, which is an irrepressible explosion of hip-hop and afrobeat.

Their debut single released in mid 2017, This Is London, was jumped on by Beats 1 DJ Julie Adenuga, hailing it as one of her tracks of the summer. The record went on to secure support from Radio 1s Phil Taggart and Mistajam, and playlisted by BBC Radio 1Xtra as their BBC Introducings track of the week.

The grimier second single Black Man Statues found a place on Spotifys Grime Shutdown playlist and featured as Mistajams Inbox Fresh as well as being supported by Huw Stephens at Radio 1. As a result of just two track releases, the vibrancy and effect of their music awarded them their first headline gig at KOKO in Camden, which sold out.

Back with new single Crown, which is being released via Leaf Music, the track balances moments of menace and levity and ultimately asks a simple question that needs answered: Who wear the Crown now?
