The result is a twelve-track effort that shimmers, pulses, and throbs with earnest and heartfelt expressions of American pop, R&B, soul, and funk, filtered through an Afropop prism. Though all of the lyrics (with the exception of Sila’s trademark tribal shouts and wails) are sung in English, it’s a record with a global identity...much like Sila himself. SuperAfrican looks at American black music through the eyes and ears of an African expatriate, grasping for the American Dream while relating the immigrant experience in this country, adapting to encompass new forms of expression while still retaining a native cultural identity.
