Martin Khan soars to the top with new single “Panado”

A rising star in the Afrobeat scene, Martin Khan from Vth Season has released a new Afrobeat/Pop song titled “Panado”, which is quickly becoming a sensation to watch out for. The song has debuted at #34 on the Top 100 Radiomonitor Airplay Chart and is being played on radio stations such as Ukhozi FM, Umhlobo Wenene FM, Motsweding FM, Lesedi FM, Gagasi FM, and Heart FM, among others.

With the catchiness of Tyla’s “Water” and the reminiscence of Manu WorldStar’s “Nalingi”, “Panado” is poised to become one of the biggest Afrobeat songs to come out of South Africa in 2024. In the song, Martin Khan uses a metaphorical comparison to convey the brief relief felt amidst life’s chaos. The song’s touching lyrics encourage listeners to embrace the collective journey of conquering challenges and finding comfort in resilience.

“Panado” is a poignant anthem capturing the tumultuous journey of young adulthood. The song delves into the relentless grind and pressures faced by today’s youth, from the weight of constant worries to the burden of bad decisions. Martin Khan’s exceptional creativity comes through in “Panado” and positions him as a promising artist on the path to becoming the next African Afrobeat sensation.

Martin Khan shares, “If you ever feel like giving up, listen to this! Panado is yours… thank you to my family, my team, and most importantly every person supporting the movement. This is just the beginning. Enjoy the music.”
