United States-based producer Brian Soko has been credited for co-writing Beyonce Knowles’s popular hit “Drunk in Love”. Soko is a hip-hop and R ‘n’ B music composer and song writer from Zimbabwe.

Credits for the song indicate it was written by Noel “Detail” Fisher, Beyoncé Knowles, Shawn Carter, Andre Eric Proctor, Rasool Diaz, Brian Soko, T.Mosley and J.Harmon.

It appears Beyonce loves to work with Africans in making her music. Some dances on her song “Run This World” were borrowed from a Mozambican group. Soko could be one of the many Africans that have been involved in Beyonce’s music.

The social platforms are booming with many praises for Soko’s great achievement.

“Congrats dude. It is probably the dream of every song writer to co-write with Beyonce.

“You have raised the country flag high bro,” posted Kicksonfire on Facebook.


Well-known local artiste, DJ Naida, tweeted: “So just found out you were part of the production team on Bey’s Drunk in love? TOOO DOPE! ZIM REPPIN!!”

Soko was apparently humbled by the comments and his response was: “Thank you for the love, so appreciated.”

Soko’s works, known on social platforms as “beatsbysoko”, indicate he also worked on a compilation album with the super-group Rich Gang.

“100 Favors”, which features Detail, Birdman and Kendrick Lamar, was also co-written and composed by Soko.

The talented producer has managed to expand his catalogue by working with other prominent African artists such as K.O. from Teargas on a track titled “Mission Statement” and DJ Vigilante’s “Sgelekeqe” that features Ma-E, PRO, Maggz.

“Drunk in Love” debuted at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has generally peaked inside the top 50 positions in most European countries singles chart. It has hit number 10 in the UK – becoming Beyonce’s 17th Top 10 hit on the chart.Its lyrics depict female sexuality as Knowles adopts sensual and confident vocals.

In September 2011, Forbes Online put out a request for a list of the 40 Most Powerful Celebrities in contemporary Africa. Over 7,500 entries were received! Now we get to see who made the list.

Oliver Mtukudzi: One Of The Most Powerful Celebrities In Africa
The list was compiled by Forbes contributor, Mfonobong Nsehe. In the introduction for the list, Mfonobong outlines the criteria.

“Determining the celebrities who exert the highest degree of influence in contemporary African pop culture involved sifting through the nominations for the individuals with the highest numbers of votes, and then measuring their media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online), number of web references on Google, TV/radio mentions and their general clout across the continent. Ideally, a robust social media presence would have been an invaluable yardstick in determining the intensity of influence these individuals exert over their enthusiasts.”
