Gabiro’s diversity has seen him transit from not only being a rapper but also being the best lyricist as is evident in his current releases. He portrays himself as the best export from the lakeside town of Kenya; Kisumu city where he has always made sure to be top of the class by being ahead of at least all trends and lifestyles pertaining to music.
He is steadily building a reputation as Kisumu’s best lyricist, and but also shares his personal struggles through his art. From working as a matatu tout to battling drug abuse, Gabiro’s ability to tell stories separates him from rap music ‘status quo’.
The rising star has been enjoying a boost in popularity in the recent past after his Facebook and Instagram verification that saw his social media numbers rise in thousands. He has since gotten brand endorsements and partnerships that have seen his brand be the most sought after not only in Kisumu, Kenya but also in the neighboring cities.
The Covid-19 pandemic is a difficult and stressful topic, but both artists manage to concentrate on positive things and are looking ahead. Dropping the EP at the perfect time.
