London’s Princess Wonda continues to hold dominion over Afro-Fusion

with the sensuously soul-awakening rhythms in ‘Shooby Doo’

The internationally adored effervescent Afro-Fusion icon, Princess Wonda, swathed the airwaves in a lush aura of soul with her latest single, Shooby Doo, which celebrates the cultural heritage of Afrobeat while inviting the listener to sensuously reignite their lust for life.

A sense of serenity envelops the fusion of traditional African instrumentation with modern dancehall production; rich, resonant and enriching in equal measure, Princess Wonda’s radiant presence is magnified in the transcendence of the release that is set to become the rhapsodic sound of the summer.

Recorded at Pirate Studio, engineered by Dami Bones, and produced by Mofizzay and Mr Marz, Shooby Doo, which officially dropped on July 5th, surpasses sound to deliver an emotionally euphonious experience that fans of Victoria Monet, Chloe Bailey, and Tiwa Savage won’t want to miss.

Princess Wonda said:

“The inspiration behind ‘Shooby Doo’ stems from a deep appreciation for the rich cultural heritage of Afrobeat and the dynamic energy of contemporary music. The lyrics resonate with themes of love, passion, and pleasure, inviting listeners to embrace the positive energy as the pulsating beats and sultry vocals capture the aura of joy and celebration”

Amelia Vandergast, the Executive Editor at A&R Factory said:

“Princess Wonda reached the pinnacle of luxuriant radiance with Shooby Doo; with melodies which wash over you with sublime elegance, harmonious harmonies and rhythmically kinetic grooves, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more elevated release than this.”


Princess Wonda, aka ‘The Queen of Afro-Fusion”, is a UK-born Nigerian independent charting artist who has moved Afrobeat culture forward by smashing through the stereotypes of women in African music after honing her craft by developing performance and working as a backing vocalist and session singer for the past 16 years.

She has had multiple UK chart entries, including ranking number 1 in the UK World Music Chart twice and hitting number 13 on the Nigerian iTunes Charts. She also sold out her first headline show in London with her innovative, eclectic sound and vocal lines that resound with melodic contemporary dynamism.

Her 2021 debut album, Fantasy Fair, which features sounds from all over Africa, amassed a staunch fanbase; in 2022, she toured through the USA, headlined the Afrosummer Jam in Zurich, toured Nigeria and Ghana and completed the tour with a sold-out headline show in London.

Recently, her single, Bust My Mind, was featured on the hit series, Harlem, on Amazon Prime Video, and her 2023 single, My Body, reached 1 million streams, in addition to over 500k streams on the single’s official music video. After the release of Shooby Doo, Princess Wanda will be releasing her second body of work, which will be an EP in 2024.
