Pa Salieu Shares Electrifying New EP 'Afrikan Rebel'

September 15, 2021

When Pa Salieu put out his Send Them To Coventry mixtape last year, he was robbed of a golden opportunity to take his incendiary new collection to the big crowds it deserved. However, this summer he finally got that chance and he seized it with both hands.

Now, with festival season just about over, he's sharing the Afrikan Rebel EP, which features production from P2J, Felix Joseph and AOD. The new three-track release also features guest appearances from Obongjayar, Tay Iwar and Zlatan who join Pa as he dives deeper into the West African sounds that inspire him.

Speaking on the project, Pa says: "Fundamentally Afrikan Rebel is about being proud and loud about where you come from in. For me that is Africa. I see the word 'Rebel' only in the most positive sense. Those figures through history that have fought against the odds to stand up for what they believe in have always intrigued and inspired me. 'Rebel' is a mindset that helps keep me strong and I hope I can encourage others to be vocal about their beliefs and stand up for what they feel is right. My Afrikan Rebel series is a movement which I hope can allow me to connect with others with a similar mindset and gives a platform for me to experiment with influences and inspirations from my culture and others from the great continent of Africa."
