Spotify Launches Zilizopendwa Playlist

Spotify has launched a new, well-curated playlist of Kenya’s Zilizopendwa songs to help fans relive the nostalgic era of what was considered the golden age of music in Kenya.

The playlist, which comprises 110 songs, has legends such as Mbilia Bel, Nakae, Les Wanyika, Them Mushrooms, Gabriel Omolo in the hope of reintroducing these artists to Gen Z who have been mostly consuming them as samples majorly from new-age artists.

Some of the songs in the playlist curated by Maxwell Nguku who is Spotify’s East African Editor include Lunch Time, Nairobi, Kazi ni Kazi among others.
