Crispy Fresh Friday tingz! This is the ultimate weekly plug for Kenya’s hottest releases. As usual, our chart is multi-genre and curated to spruce up your playlists.
Zing – Watendawili
Following the success of the hit Drill Rhumba featuring Okello Max, the Watendawili duo is back with a new tune Zing. Unlike most of their past releases, Zing is more upbeat with a distinct Afrobeat undertone. The duo blends their voices to form beautiful harmonies as they flaunt their love songwriting skills. Lastly, the video concept is fire featuring dope choreography and mad fun.
Mambo Ya Mhesh (Remix) – Bahati, Sosuun, Diana B & Ssaru
They say that a good song deserves a remix (OK, I made that up). Bahati teams up with Kenya’s top female rappers who layer the fire tune with their bars. Mambo Ya Mhesh (Remix) is pure vibes. Definitely a good choice to get ready to go party this evening (only if you have money or a mhesh to buy the drinks *wink*).
Falling Down – Nikita Kering
Nikita’s vocals and songwriting talent are out of this world and Falling Down is no exception. This song is the 3rd release of her latest EP, The Other Side. Nikita effortlessly conveys the emotion of the song as she speaks of a deep love that she insists on pursuing despite warnings from those around her.
Iivane – Wakuu Ft Khaligraph
A showcase of lyrical prowess is the best way to describe this song. Wakuu’s delivery is on point as the merges forces with the OG himself Khaligraph. Even though Wakuu has been largely underrated, Iivane could just be the jam that officially ushers this trio into Kenyan Hip Hop royalty.
