Hot off his collaboration with Grammy Award winner Miri Ben-Ari, Israeli born Gilad Millo is back with an ode to his adopted city Nairobi, which he has called home for the past ten years.
The Kenyan – based Millo teams up with Superband for this melodious song Nairobi Yangu , in which he describes Nairobi as the best city he’s lived in comparing with other major world capitals such as New York and London among others.
Like a solitary rose in full bloom in a garden full of exotic flowers – Nairobi is elevated and planted firmly in our ears as he croons about it being the only city in which he’s found love.
Nairobi Yangu , which was written during one of the city’s infamous traffic jams, is a song that he hopes will position the Kenyan Capital as the leading business and arts hub in Africa, filled with fun loving people and a spirit of celebration and is an instant classic guaranteed to play on in our hearts and minds for generations to come.
The music video, which was directed by Mushking, made a buzz in mid march when the Nairobi County arranged for the closing off of Mama Ngina Street for the shooting of a major scene in the video has received rave reviews with some viewers comparing Gilad to Midas who turned everything he touched into Gold.
