As we culminate the week, we take a look at what’s trending this week in the 254 music scene.
Gravitti Band Feat Nameless
We all know Gravitti Band as the Go-To-Group when it comes to live reggae set performances in the 254 and recently they decided to venture into recording music. On this fresh instalment, they sought the skills of the legend Nameless for a collaborative effort on ‘Sweetie’. This jam, of course, is not an original composition, as it’s a classic hit from 1982 by John Holt. The band together with nameless put their own twist and pomp to give it a KE sound. The video is pretty decent and laid back but I feel they should have been out on the streets showcasing that infamous ‘sweetie’. It is produced by Mushking.
Bobby Mapesa Feat Calvo Mistari, Opips & Jardel
These two cats (B&C) are meshing to be something worthwhile. Another collabo out titled ‘Nawapenda Wote’ is a hilarious tale of two sides of Nairobi women, Calvo raps about the uptown girl and her preferences while Mapesa speaks for the Ghetto gal. They paint vivid pictures in the story making it so legit. Opips and Jardel lay down the chorus so well to finish off this record. This s the 3rd single off their upcoming Album produces by Dillie.
Kagwe Mungai Feat Alicios
Producer extraordinaire Kagwe has the skill to easily maneuver through genres and diverse styles of music as showcased on this new record with Congolese-Kenyan based star Alicios Theluji. The new song ‘Nyumbani’ has Chakacha infused beat. It depicts the ritual of marriage and new lovebirds meeting their folks. Alicios throws in some perfect Congolese vocals and her back and forth with Kagwe is timely. The song is produced by R Kay while the video is shot by Stanz Visuals. Enjoy the video below.
