On Monday 28th May, East London DJ P Montana made his long-awaited debut on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Jumping on the airwaves after DJ Target from 7-11pm, P delivered a masterclass in afrobeats.
He was joined in the studio by Afro B and Naira Marley, with the former giving some insight on the inspiration for his football-themed banger, “Drogba”. Apparently, it was original about Ronaldo, but the name didn’t sing well, so they switched it up in the studio to give Didier a name check instead.
The show also featured a ‘Welcome to the UK’ mix of all African artists for AfroRepublik Festival, which took over the O2 Arena the previous Saturday.
You can cop the tracklist and listen back to the show back in full over on the BBC 1Xtra website.
