I’ve had a folder of Yamoto band’s music for a while now and have been rocking to various GREAT records from the group.
“Nitakupwelepweta” is DOPE RECORD!!!!! Sick vocals by the group over a great beat. This is crazy… #BANGER. Good visuals too. Taking it back to DOPE EAST AFRICAN MUSIC with the dancing and colorful scenes.
There are a few artists that I consider superstars in terms of music progression and consistently getting better with every passing year. Bahati is one of them.
He’s always innovative and fearless with every new project and although he’s always making “radio records”, he’s found the formula that works and running with it.
Kenyan songstress Victoria Kimani is back with a new record titled “Two of dem” that was produced by produced by Drey Beatz. Currently signed to Nigeria’s Chocolate City’s, the record has the feel and aura of Dancehall/Naija records, and my personal opinion is that they all sound the same.
It’s not a bad record at all but it just didn’t do it for me. It lacked something and after a few listens I can honestly say that if they had a rapper spitting some 16’s or 32’s on the record would have easily catapulted it from a 3 to a 7. Classic example of a good record that lacks a honest evaluation from the production team and record label on how to produce a record.
We first featured with “Uliza Kiatu” last year. They recently released some new records including Lovephobic and Nikikutazama. According to The record label Penya Africa Nikikutazama’s is a record/video that celebrates the African way of love ;the chase and the ‘silly’ things we do just to see those we love smile. If you miss the 60’s or curiosity has you wondering what the 60’s were like, this new video Nikikutazama will surely paint the perfect picture for you.
After Ogopa Djs released all artists on their stable, many artists sought to look else where to further their carrer. Amani joins forces with with 360 Music and Grandpa Records, for her latest single “Kizungu Zungu that talks about the amazement and confusion sometimes seen when someone is in love.
The video was Directed by “Sync,” and Although not Amani’s best work f, it definitely deserves a few spins and I’ll definitely add this to rotation.
Rich Mavoko to me really sounds too cliche’ not to take anything away from his talents but truthfully its going to be really hard to distinguish between Rich & Diamond pretty soon. For what its worth these new upcoming KE vs TZ collabos are going to be thrilling.
I just got this record today and with them releasing the video today simultaneously, it’s only fair I show case it while it’s still hot. When Dan sent me this record I knew what to expect from the track. Here is an excerpt of what I said before about Grandpa records, their sound, music and artists.
They’ve been on the grind by building their fan base by releasing various records and doing various shows and concerts across East Africa. In the process, they’ve also found and perfected their own sound and lane.
Fimbo ya Tatu features Wavinya , KenRazy , Visita , Lil Sliq , Renee , Wyre , Dufla Diligon , Sosuun , Chief Moses , U.B , Sauti Sol and although some of the artists just are on the chorus, them appearing on the video is a big testament to how 254 artists collabo and how they should be rocking together for the future.
