New Zealand's own hip-hop supergroup of african-descent BLKCITY (Raiza Biza, JessB, Abdul Kay, Blaze the Emperor, and Mo Muse) follow up a show-stopping headline set at Splore with the release of the music video for their latest single, the afrobeat-flavoured 'Pogba', created by BLKCITY and rising music video creator Connor Pritchard.

Afrobeat has been consumed and loved by many African nations for generations, and 'Pogba' celebrates the achievements of Manchester United star and Football World Cup winner with France, Paul Pogba. Set to an afrobeat beat by Cameroonian producer Tony EF Beats, the track is the third from the group’s forthcoming album which is set to be released in the middle of 2021.

Following on from ‘Flying’ and ‘Salsa’, ‘Pogba’ reflects on the lives of the five rappers as young African-New Zealanders, and showcases their prodigious talent and ability to move effortlessly through different styles of hip hop. 'Flying' and 'Salsa' were Spotify favourites landing on many playlists and gathering over 600,000 streams and 'Pogba' is sure to delight BLKCITY's growing audience.
