Kenyan femcee, singer, rapper, producer and writer who epitomizes a gritty blend of conscious Hip Hop, Afro Soul and feminist pride is not stopping in her quest to retire at the top.
MC Sharon, known by her other monikers as Decibelle or Alshaverb Mama Yao just completed her fifth studio project called GEMS – Genetically Emancipated Musical Soul. She states that the word means more to her than the denotative precious stones.
“It refers to a Genetically Emancipated Musical Soul as evidenced in my transitional journey through the world of sound and beyond. From a girl to a woman, a woman to a queen and finally queen to a goddess,” comments Mc Sharon
The 20 track music project is a sufficient depiction of her process. She is the executive producer, co-engineer and co-director of the entire project supported by various global producers who ensure her vision came to life.
She featured Kash Grindhauz, Trabolee, Six Foot, Kev Mamba, Hiram Kamau, Black Spear and her own son Jabali. The individual players added the spicy balance to the already broad spectral piece of work.
Kutupanga was the first single off this project and there are many more important videos and singles lined up to back it up.
GEMS like all the projects before it is raw, gritty, honest, controversial, spiritual, melodic, hardcore and fun all in one. From tackling politics on ‘Kutupanga’, to love on Leo Loving, to straight city bars on Nairobi block the overall versatility in GEMS is amazing.
