It’s back to work in the 254 music scene and our artists are setting the tone for the year. Here are some interesting hot releases for this 3rd week of January 2017.
AY Feat Nyashinski
Legends in the game as considered by many have teamed up to bring new heat for the New Year. AY from 255 and our own Nyashinski have just released a collabos title ‘More and More’. A very pleasant melodic tropical beat filled with dancehall ad-libs and the artists are so comfortable on the beat. You can feel the chemistry between the artist and the verses are vivid on this babe they want more from. Produced by Dreh Beatz Studios and Hermy B, this is set to be a Radio hit. Both acts come to the New Year to top us the success of 2016 and I hope we shall have more of this.
Femi One Feat Kristoff
A potential club banger produced by Jack Jack on the beat, this is a new realm. Femi One is moving from her core hip-hop audience to join the current Kapuka fad. Kristoff has mastered the art of churning hits with catchy one-liners, in this case, “leo mna tippy toe”. Released under Kaka Empire outfit, the music video is up to par and will give the song extra mileage. I will be waiting to see the reaction of the fans on this new collabos.
Collo Feat Scooby
Collo is firmly settling into the gospel scene but his appeal is spiraling across the board. On this new record, he teams up with Scooby ‘The Lazy Rapper’ and release ‘Jijue’. A perfect fusion of 808 drums and Kapuka percussions give the track a flawless rhythm. Collo is riding on the success of his previous hit Bazokizo and I feel this will bear some dance routines too. Easy sing along like “Mwanaume ni kumjua Yesu/Jijue“ collo is a master on this. Expect this to get crazy spins on all gospel forums.
All new Diambo (Trouble) is his first single for 2017. I like the comical effect Kristoff lays on his verses and always rapping about everyday hood hustle. I applaud him on his Sheng wordplay resonance. Anyone can relate to”Rambo Kanambo hii track ni Diambo, miliyo ya migambo juu, leo kuna jambo” he is able to showcase his lyrical willpower for the ordinary fan. Produced by Ulopa, the beat allows us to expect more from the artist and Kristoff did deliver from start to finish. The visual is out too, directed by Enos Olik, depicts the good life artists are living or purport to.
