Upper Quintet: Zymzor, Ziggy Machala, D3kr, Nakeltbg…

At The Upper Entertainment, we believe that good music deserves to be heard. However, it often struggles to find its way to the audience it deserves. In response, we have committed ourselves to promoting emerging African artists, broadening their reach, and amplifying their voices. The Upper Quintet stands as a testament to this commitment.

The Upper Quintet is a weekly editorial series spotlighting and endorsing five outstanding underground songs. These selections are meticulously chosen by our proficient and qualified editors from a pool of entries received each week. Without further ado, here are the five songs that have captured our attention this week:
