Whoo-han! This week Brandon and Deej invite Antionette Isama to the pod to talk her piece in Vibe, Burna Boy and the rise of African music on the eve of the Grammys. Is now the time to pay homage to Drake for his influence? We think...not. Deej recounts his bout with swine flu as the Wuhan virus makes its way to US shores. Get ready to panic! Ring is recording everything! Also if a Saudi Prince sends you a message don’t open it, even if you’re Jeff Bezos. Beware of the panopticon y’all.
