The much anticipated solo debut album by Kenya’s cool charm – Steph Kapela is out. The album dubbed Vikky Secrets dopped over the weekend on all digital platforms, and the contents will blow you away. This is your chance to listen to Kapela express his thoughts, rap, rhyme, talk and decipher love topics all by himself on a project.
The nine-track album pulls back the curtain and lets the listener into the good, the bad and ugly sides
of a relationship. ‘Secrets’ is an introspective perspective of love. A sweet love that sours in the end like most love stories. It explores some of the issues no one likes to talk about in a personal and vulnerable way through
themes such as intimacy, the other woman, sex addiction, chasing fantasies and regret of lost love.
The sound of the album is a cocktail of Trap, Hip-hop, RnB and Afropop dance anthems. Kapela has a way of telling stories on a beat and painting a picture and with this project, his artistry is so vivid. The flow and bars expressed will leave you seeking for more but your mind will play tricks on you to think you can rap as well.
Commenting on the album, Kapela had this to say, “‘This album for me at least, is the right album for the now. I needed to find myself, find the love again, I wanted to hold nothing back and deal with all of it: love, lust and longing – and I feel many people need that right now, especially being isolated with their loved ones. It’s good to explore how things go right and how they go wrong and just maybe find a way through it.”
The production brings in the international vibes. Several highly skilled and passionate professionals worked on
the audio production of this project. From Giggz and Festus in the US, Kaxi in Malawi and Nelson Cryptic,
Jeraw Beats, and Ivan Odie right here in Nairobi. Vikky Secrets is Executive Produced by Ivan Odie, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered at Callivan Creatives Studios.
This will be your ultimate listening project for the weekend.
