Ikoqwe is the collaborative vehicle of Portuguese artist Batida and activist rapper Ikonoklasta. The pair’s new single, ‘Vai Vai’, is both a lot of fun and massively intriguing as the throbbing bass notes and Afrobeats rattle along apace giving the rapped vocals space to stagger all over the place. The video makes even less sense as the pair drive around in a mini-van dressed as balls of wool with toilet brushes and drum sticks for antennae. I think it’s the sign of a good track when you have no idea what’s going on but you keep coming back for more just to try to find out.
