Afro-fusion artiste and street-hop royal, Adekunle Idowu better known by the stage name, Idowest, has stepped up his ‘Mafia Culture’ with the release of his highly anticipated mixtape entitled, Mafia Culture, Vol 2.
The new project, a 10-tracker features DMW boss, Davido, and DMW artiste Mayorkun, as well as Alubarika crooner, Patoranking, Zlatan, Bella Shmurda, MohBad, Q2, Abram Soul, and C Black among others.
Led by the buzzing Shamaya featuring Patoranking, and currently killing the streets, the mixtape is a follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Mafia Culture Vol. 1, with the street smash-hit Shepeteri, which was received with great commendations.

“Making this project meant a lot to me and I put my heart out on this one! Big shout to my team and every single person that worked on this project with me. Big ups to every one of you! Y’all go run this one up. Link in my bio,” he wrote on Twitter.
