Mutoriah and Bensoul’s latest collaboration is the ultimate new generation Kenyan love song. The track titled Tosheka is a single off Mutoriah’s album Dive In. Just as the title suggests, the song’s message is about contentment, where the two singers urge their lovers to stay and be satisfied with them despite the ups and downs of life.
Produced by Mutoriah and written by Bensoul, the track brings out the diverse yet complementary vocals of both artistes. The audio which was beautifully mixed and mastered by Tawala beats magnifies their high-quality vocals and intricate details of the instruments. The spoken word intro also adds a deep vibe to the song.
The video which is simple yet sophisticated was shot by CJ Pixel and directed by Director Kay. In the video, Mutoriah and Bensoul perform the song in a living room to an engaging audience that enjoys singing along to the song. The visuals also showcase the bromance between the two artistes certifying that they are on the same page as far the message of the song is concerned.
Pleased about this collaboration, Mutoriah said, “Bensoul has a way with words, his writing is precise yet meaningful. I actually didn’t choose Bensoul, he chose me and I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.” He further adds that the theme of love is timeless and Tosheka was written to remind people, to focus on the small things as they really matter.
This is not the first time that the two artistes have worked together as Mutoriah, was part of the production talent in Bensoul’s hit songs Lucy and Niombee. Mutoriah has also worked with other Kenyan stars such as Gilad, Sauti Sol, Serro, Ayrosh and Fena Gitu. The talented singer and music producer was also featured in the Big Break segment of the last season of Coke Studio where he worked with musicians such as Kemunto and Zimbabwean producer Young DLC among others.
