These past few weeks have seen various Kenyan artists having released new jams to their fans listening pleasure. From Khaligraph Jones to the steaming hot ‘Figa’ remix by Ethic ft Jamaica’s Konshens.
Khaligraph Jones – Leave Me Alone
Kenyan award-winning rapper Khaligraph Jones released his anticipated new jam titled ‘Leave Me Alone’ on Wednesday (26.06.19) after a trip to the US and the birth of his daughter with his girlfriend Georgina Muteti. In the video that was shot in Dallas and Houston in the US, the self-proclaimed OG tells people to leave him alone if they don’t have any plans and they can’t keep up with him. The lyrics are simple yet hard-hitting and the beat will make you want to bust a move. ‘Leave Me Alone’ has garnered over 230,000 views in 2 days.
Otile Brown – Lucy ft Arrowbwoy and Masauti
Top Kenyan Swahili crooners lead by serial hitmaker Otile Brown, ‘Digi digi’ singer Arrowbwoy and Masauti known for his jam ‘Kiboko’ have come together to release a new banger titled ‘Lucy’. In Lucy, the artists unleash their ‘nasty’ side as they sing about getting down dirty. The song has no official video yet although the audio is accompanied with a short video of the trio in studio singing and dancing along to the song’s killer beat. ‘Lucy’ comes only a week after Otile’s latest Lingala love ballad featuring Jovial dubbed ‘Amor’.
The Kansoul – Accelerator (Serereka) ft Vivian
Kenyan hitmaking trio The Kansoul have today (28.06.19) dropped a banger called ‘Accelerator’ (Serereka) featuring songbird Vivian. ‘Accelerator’ is a one-pot music pan which sees the artists sample classic hits like Raggamuffin’s ‘If I Was A Rich Girl’, Red Rat’s ‘Bizzi Blazzi’, ‘Who Am I’ (Sim Simma) by Beenie Man just to mention a few. The Madtraxx produced track views on YouTube are climbing fast. It might not be the best-written song in Kenyan history and is certainly lacking in concept as the video concept is from two years ago but the song checks off as a club banger that many revelers will be getting down to.
Other Kenyan songs to listen to this weekend include Masauti’s ‘Leo ni Leo’, Otile Brown’s ‘Amor’and Nviiri the Storyteller’s ‘Pombe Sigara’
