It is hard to believe we are on the final stretch of 2020. December is here but with the looming pandemic worries, there will be limited parties and celebrations. All we can do is keep virgil, stay sanitized and keep safe till the vaccine lands in our country. This week we take a look at what is hot in the 254 music space. Check out the bangers below.
Nyashinski Feat Chris Kaiga – Hapo Tu
The comeback king is steadily taking collaborations but it is clear he goes for the best. We never saw this one coming nor anticipated it. ‘Hapo Tu’ is a banger. Period. The production from Cedo Kedenyi sets the pace for these two greats to lay some dope bars and storytelling. I love the flexing the pair brings on talking about their fast lane lives. They bring some fun aspects and tell the fans to let loose. Peep the video below.
Wakadinali – Nyaranyara
If you want to have a feel of African drill, you need to listen keenly to Wakadinali. The crew has an album dubbed ‘Victims Of Madness’ online and this record ‘Nyaranyara’ is track 11 on the album. Wakadinali always brings that street swag, decorum and lingo to their music. They bring the stories from the hood to life and we are able to feel what it is like to live in the ghetto. Scar as always murders the verse on the outro of the song. Press listen to the video below to experience greatness.
Benzema Feat Savara (Sauti Sol) – Bypass
This is a cool collaboration we love to see as it bridges two worlds. Benzema from Ochungulo Family brings his Gengetone vibe to a more relaxed Afro Soul beat flanked by Sauti Sol’s Savara. The jam is a perfect marriage between the new wave and more mature sound. Stream below and rate it out of 10.
Vybz Kartel Feat Petra – Turn Off The Light
I think the rep Kenya has out there must be out of the world. Somebody explain to me how Vybz Kartel who is facing a life sentence in prison has a song with Kenya’s very own Petra. This should be the biggest record on all Kenyan Media stations. Kartel kicks off the song with ‘So Mi ah Say, Petra, Teacher, fi Kenya’ meaning the song was specifically made for Kenya and the collabo is legit. Petra comes in with bars and switches to a Patois flow which is incredible. 2020 really has many tricks but this I did not expect.
