Naiboi & Rayvanny Share What It Takes To Sound Better Than Wedding Bells

12 March of 2019 by

Emerging Kenyan Star Naiboi who is enjoying the fruits of his career at this moment teamed up with Wasafi Records signee and superstar Rayvanny for a sick Coke Studio collabo.

The real ice breaker, however, was when Naiboi took Rayvanny on a visit to the old hood. They went to his old home and studio and they chatted as they walked around the place he left ten years ago. 

“I was set on being an artist” reminisced Naiboi. “And that was very hard, especially because my relatives felt my dad was wasting money investing in me, they felt he was letting his child waste his life.” His father supported him nonetheless.

Turns out Rayvanny’s father was also pivotal in his musical career, “He worked at the railway company. He was an engineer, but when he came home from work, he’d fix radios. On those radios he would play music, and I think that’s what made me love music, and now it’s my career…”  

“2 in 1” was inspired by Naiboi’s great love, the mother of his child and his son. “I also have someone,” said Rayvanny. In an industry where committed and admitted relationships are rare, the two share the desire to get married. Though they both nodded their head when Rayvanny commented, “It’s not the right time to get married though.”

So clearly, walks down the aisles has some time off,  however, it was the right time to create “Vigelegele” – a jam inspired by marriage and weddings.

Produced by Rayvanny’s longtime producer Lizer, the two created what Ravyanny calls “A wedding song for everyone to celebrate love with, women, men, children, everyone!”

Naiboi, who was so pleased with the marimba touch he spiced the song with, agrees that “It’s a song that can be played at each an every African wedding across the world. It just has that authentic African touch.”
