The track is a perfect blend of highlife and Afro-pop instrumental with an addictive rhythm that sees both all three in sync. This song is a jam!!
Rema – “Ginger Me”
This track is still buzzing even without a music video and this list would be incomplete without it. “Ginger Me” is a soul, pop, afro-Indie jam produced by The Element.

Rema’s “Woman” is still topping charts. After declaring love for one woman in “Ginger Me,” he puts on his bad boy cape and sings about loving plenty of women. He can’t seem to make up his mind and he keeps on switching it up in every track. Well, get ready to put on your dancing shoes for this track because Rema came through with some kind of crazy spiritual vibes. An interesting feature of this track is the catchy phrases like “Asampeteprokotomakule” and “Sa koloweko”. Get ready to put on your dancing shoes to this bopping sound.
