Barbra Chepkoech Ng’eno better known by her stage name Sage, is a popular Kenyan neo soul artist whose catapult to fame was her collaboration ‘So-Alive’ which she released early 2013 featuring well known Kenyan and Kibera’s finest rapper, Octopizzo aka “Namba Nane”.
Fast forward to July 2016,Sage now a mother of one, has a new song out titled Maskini which is a single off her debut album called Expose yourself which is available for download on Waabeh. com.
Maskini is a song about being helplessly in love. Sage explores the mixed emotions of loving someone who seems to be unaware of the war going on in her heart.
The love sick song has an up beat tem that makes Sage dance around in the video making it the perfect go to song when you're feeling helplessly in love.
It's written by Sage, produced and composed by the talented Freddie 'Dillie' W alongside Sage. The beautiful video was done by Team Mistari Productions.
Sage started out in church singing at the age of five with her siblings.
The Kenyan singer, songwriter and instrumentalist got her big break when she became the backing vocalist and keyboardist to Muthoni the Drummer Queen, another Kenyan musician. This gave her the experience she needed to start her solo career in late 2011.
She also worked with rapper Jay A on the hit song Dumbala which was such a massive hit not only in Kenya but East Africa as well.
