It’s no secret that  Philadelphia is a bedrest for musical talent. In the 1980s, it was Schoolly D who helped put Philly on the map and many more followed in the 2000’s with State PropertyRocafella Records but now it has a new kind of flow and genre that flows in a physical form. Today, Meek Mill is Philadelphia’s most recognizable hip-hop musical figure. Next up is Oneluv Mahugu

Oneluv Mahugu’s demographic of followers is international not just local, he is widely considered a versatile dance hall/soca/ hip hop artist. Co-signing is very significant, and it speaks volumes when certified artists co-sign new talent. Rapper Cuban Link (Felix Delgado) has collaborated with Oneluv Mahugu on the remix of Oneluv’s certified banga entitled “Beautiful Gal”. Cuban is a Hispanic rapper and former member of the legendary rap group Terror Squad.  Oneluv stated that “it was a dream come true! As a kid in high school, I was the ultimate Terror Squad fan and I specifically liked the style and artistry of former Terror Squad member Cuban Link”. Oneluv was also a fan of Philadelphia’s own legendary rap group “State Property” and had a chance to collaborate on a track with his favorite member “Omillio Sparks”. 

 The deep mixture of Dance hall /reggae/soca / pop influence in Oneluv’s music derived from the influential sounds of Barrington LevyShabba Ranks and SupercatOneluv took a 3 year hiatus from music and is now back with a certified love song banga entitled Malaika Wangu. Malaika Wangu means “My Angel” in Swahili, there is a huge void in love songs and Oneluv chose to create a love anthem that is guaranteed to set the mood and heat the dance floor. His latest single Malaika Wangu is for the lovers.
