My main connect Dan sent me this record a few weeks ago and I’m now finally posting it. Chris Adwar is a talented musician from Kenya and is part of the Villagers Band.
The first time I heard Benta, I immediately thought of the Katitu Boyz Band hahaha. The song is about searching for a lost lover. Benta is unique, refreshing and yet powerful. Combined with the voice of the group and the instrumentals, it makes for a classic song…
Benta is another testament that the EA region does not have to copy other people’s sounds to make good music…
This record has been getting tons of spins on my playlist…
This is a brand new record from Tanzanian artist Roma. Artists have a voice when it comes to talking about various political, and social economical issues facing their countries. They act as the vocie for the masses.
on Viva Roma Viva,produced by J-Ryder from Tongwe Records Roma addresses the current political situation in Tanzania with various issues of money embezzlement, corruption and privatization by some of the leaders.
Roma goes hard on the record. Just check out some of the bars below:
Katiba ni sauti ya uma na kuna Uhuru wa kuongea
Ninyi ndio mmenituma, mpo tayari kunitetea?
Wilaya wanaifanya mkoa ili wapange washikaji
Mkuu wa wilaya changudoa, hii ni miradi Ya upigaji
Watasafirisha nyani, sisi tunashangaa twiga
Tutamfunga nani ye mwanasheria mkuu na maswahiba

We round off this unplanned coast posts back to back and I’m feeling all this new music. Like most people, routines are a part of us and one of my routines every day is check my emails for new music from different artists and listen to all that music…
Some of the music is not bad but also not worth getting a spot on the site. I have been bumping to this record ever since I got it. Boy wa Mtaa features Crazy K also from Mombasas and they both go hard with strong rhymes that speak the truth.
Keep listening and you will get the feel and rhymes on the record…
It’s another record from Mombasa. I’m a firm believer that good music is good music regardless of the country, area zone or county. This record features Mombasa’s Dee Bouwy that kinda reminds me of a mellow Ar B. The first time I get music from artists we have not featured before I do a quick google just to see what pops up , which typically for me is a testament oh how they grind and wnat people out there to view them. Dee Bouwy has that covered in that he has a Goggle+ page with quality pictures and links to his audios and videos. Hapo sawa…
He definitely is on the right path on hustlin music 101. On his page he describes himself as I’m Daniel wale aka Deebouwy,Was born and raised in bamburi mombasa before moving to Nyali mombasa,I went to shree swaminarayan academy,was a kenyan swimmer back in 01,i love music,ama rapper/c.e.o of militaryswaggteam based in kenya and southafrica,also i own a dj company..I’m 5″9 ,got black eyes,good smile,Good weight,bodybuilt
This record which screams BANGER all over features an who’s whos in the Mombasa scene from Susumila, Kidis Johnny SKani, Amoury Beyby,Rojo Mo Kingsting and Producer Totti
This is a new record from H_Art The Band. I love the simplicity and authenticity of the video which makes the record shine more. They describe it as a nostalgic recount of the days when life was easy and care free #babylove
