Welcome to the first edition of Crispy fresh in 2020, a feature where we highlight what’s hot and trendy in the 254 music industry. We had to give it a few weeks to see who comes shooting with bangers – and we sure have them lined up.
Sailors Feat Nadia Mukami – Nitekenye
Gengetone officiandos Sailors Gang have kept the ball rolling for the new year. This is an unlikely collabo where Gengetone meets Afro-Vibes. Nadia made the crew speak about love and feelings while she lays her angelic voice on this record ‘Nitekenye’. This is a great listen and a step in the right direction.
Ethic – Soko
This crew enjoys country-wide support championing Gengetone and they do deliver on that promise. This new record reminds us Ethica can bring bars and mix it up with fun. The vibes stay street to the core, adult content as usual but the rhyme schemes will keep you rewinding to catch the intended meaning.
Timmy Tdat Feat Beenie Gunter – Uptown Girl
Kenyan star Timmy is slowly but surely cementing his East African reign with multiple collaborations. He teams up with Uganda’s Beenie Gunter for a dancehall infused love story on the track ‘Uptown Girl’. Beenie drops his Dancehall style which sounds way better with the Ugandan accent. The two trade verses with ease to create beautiful music.
Otile Brown – The Way You Are
Ladies man Otile brown is back to assure the ladies they are beautifully and wonderfully made just the way they are. Creating a sense of assurance no matter the skin colour, tribe, religion or career, Otile has this one on lock. The video depicts various personalities in women sending the message home.
King Kaka ft Kelechi Africana – Kesi
If you had missed the amazing love poetry from King Kaka then you are in for a treat. Kelechi Africana lays some amazing vocal rebuttals on this track giving it a soul. Check out the love ballad below.
