In an attempt to broaden our eye on the music scene in the 254, we shall be crossing over to the severely untapped Afro Soul, and contemporary sound that is slowly bubbling to the top. A Beautiful artform that is not getting as much shine.
Today we highlight a past Airtel TRACE Music Star winner Webi, a skilled songwriter, guitarist, and soulful singer. Having started a professional music career in 2003, Webi has up until now recorded three studio albums ‘Outside my Window’ (2005), ‘All I Can Say’ (2009) & ‘Lukundo (Love)’. He has also released some independent singles including ‘Gonna Be Alright’, ‘The Love Stand’, ‘Save This Land (Tuokoe)’.
He is also a 3 time One Gospel awards winner (2008), a multiple Groove awards nominee (2009) & the Airtel TRACE music star winner – Kenya (2015).
Webi is back with a new song, #NewDay. The jam speaks into hope for better days ahead, encouraging anyone that is experiencing or has endured disappointment in life. Dedicated to the ‘Everyday people’. Webi is an accomplished singer and has this crisp and mature voice which when coupled with his catchy melodies it gives his songs a chilled and sundowners feel. New Day will have a longer shelf life as it is sweet to the ear and cuts across a wide audience of listeners.
Written, arranged & performed by Webi. Produced by Dennis Ihaji at Ihaji Studios. The Video Directed by Osidiana Moses of Brain works Films.
Webi also performs live at various events with his band, ‘Webi & Friends’
