Afternoon Afrobeat (#15): "Lento" by Professor

Professor is becoming one of South Africa's most well-known contemporary Kwaito artists. Kwaito is a music genre that originated in Johannesburg in the 1990s that is related to hip-hop and is often described as a slower type of house music. 

Kwaito originated after the election of Nelson Mandela and often includes political messages and descriptions of South Africa's political history; however, other Kwaito songs are apolitical and serve merely as dance music.  

The song above, "Lento", is from Professor's album that was released two years ago.
