mumbiUSA-based Kenyan songstress, Mumbi, is back to Kenya and set to launch her debut EP “For The Culture” – 30th of April 2018 from East Africa, in a worldwide release.

Even before the EP was ready for release, Mumbi was concurrently working on her debut album, which is expected to be ready by September 2018. While in Kenya, she intends to collaborate with top Kenyan acts including Khaligraph Jones, Steph Kapela, Xtatic and Camp Mulla.
