Coming off back-to-back collaborations with Geo Wellington on well-received songs ‘Tik Tok’ and ‘Yenko’, London-based Ghanaian artist, Young Rob delivers yet another smooth-sounding song by name ‘I Need Your Love’. Stream ‘I Need Your Love’ 

Struck by love at first sight, Young Rob flaunts his sweet side on the 2-minute-long song. He’s way past the infatuation phase and eagerly expresses his desire to win over the loving of one babe he can’t get enough of.
As expected, the ‘Got That’ crooner brings his A-game; delivering fresh lyrics and vocals fit for the agenda.
Young Rob shares smooth and feel-good single ‘I Need Your Love

To further spice things up, he features talented Jazz, R&B and Afrobeat saxophonist, Joko Magic, who’s mastery over the brass instrument adds a layer of depth to the song’s feel.

The virtuoso lays in an intense solo akin to her performances at famed events like the Montreux Jazz Festival and Jazzwerkstatt – a true beauty to behold.

‘I Need Your Love’ was programmed by one of Ghana’s budding producers, Samuel G, with its mixing and mastering done by Yann Gabriel and 2 Kings Entertainment Studios respectively. It’s a step in the right direction for the multi-genre artist and is a bit of what’s to come from his camp.

Meet 19 year-old Besa Mumba, Zambia’s Youngest Commercial Pilot. Besa was born on 9th December 1996.  She  began her training with the Charlie 152 and then onto the Charlie 172 plane .

After that she moved on to complex training, the Charlie 172 plane retractable to which she got her caravan rating when I got my commercial pilot license.

Besa then went to get advanced training at semi flight  in South Africa. Upon her return to Zambia, she was offered a job with pro flight Zambia.

 Besa says  ”I’m so happy to be at the proflight my experience has been great so far initially at first I though It would be fancy in the cabin crew but then I thought why not be the one who flight the aircraft. From then onwards I had so many questions like how does it fly, how do they stay in the sky how do they know where they are it made me so curious to be the one behind the controls.

So after I finished high school I went to flight school. There are only a small amount of women who fly aircrafts but women can fly aircrafts so of you are doubting you can do it.when I finish work I like to listen to music.

I also like to rest and relax because it’s very important. I love to see new places and learn new languages. I see myself being a captain on one of the jets because I’m big about flying here in my home country .so far so good it’s been an amazing experience ….’
