King Kanja has been teasing us with some fresh releases from his scheduled EP in the recent past.’Weekend’ which featured Chris Searcy’s sweet R&B vocals gel with Kanja’s sultry ride got some positive reviews. Now Kanja says the EP is officially out.
Kanja was recently nominated for an AFRIMMA award for ‘Crossing Boundaries With Music’ since he’s eked out his niche from traversing international borders, i.e Africa and America. He is known for blending Hip-Hop, R&B, reggae and African polyrhythmic music, and infuses his native languages of Kikuyu and Swahili into his lyrics. Although he missed the award, the ”VIBES” EP release will surely ride that wave.
Some of the jams that made the cut include, “All My Life”, Kanja delivers an upbeat afro pop track produced by Silvastone. “Mesmerized” featuring Kenyan songstress Ida Longomba is a fast-paced club banger where Kanja also enlists Lovy Longomba (formerly of the Longombas). Other tracks that make-up “VIBES” EP include: “Royal Family” and “Cathy” produced by Willbeatz and Chucky Thompson, respectively.
Speaking on his brand new EP release Kanja says, “Nothing touches an artiste more than the VIBE you give people, and the VIBE you leave someone with. I named my EP VIBES because all the people I’ve met, all the places I’ve been, and all the music I’ve heard left me with a VIBE to share with the world through my music”, revealing “I plan to release a full album soon. I just wanted to give my fans and supporters a project that they can live on and feel while I finish my album.”
VIBES EP is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
