G-Wiji – Rest in Peace

16365_1291298289173_5055101_n

G-Wiji aka Miti of the legendary hip-hop duo Mashifta has passed on. Together with fellow rapper Kitu Sewer they formed the collective group and were among the pioneers of hip hop music in Kenya and with classic cuts like Pesa Pombe Siasa na Wanawake, System Ya Majambazi, and Unga.

Mashifta and their Ukoo Flani Mau Mau movement was one of the groups who used songs to tackle the social, political and economic situation in Kenya with amazing passion. G-Wiji’s rhythmic word play, lyricism and versatility is what we had come to appreciate. He captivated the listener and left you wanting more.

For Hip-Hop heads and lovers of good music in general, please bump heavy to Mashifta’s music as you celebrate the life of G-Wiji. Although G-Wiji is gone, his work will continue to make marks on the music community.

One one his lines on the “Majambazi” record sums it all up. Nafanya my time nikichungwa na mungu

RIP G-Wiji.

Nameless-Ng’anga’ana (**GetMziki Exclusive)

Nameless
This is the second single from Nameless B4iR project which will be released this year. The first single was “African Beauty” which we never featured on the site. In case you still haven’t noticed we don’t really feature any type of records on the site.

That record failed to capture the masses and I’m not surprised. I have been vocal that artists should step away from the African Girl aka African Queen aka African Beauty ………… records. They are just way over saturated and there are more than enough subject matter that artists can write too apart from that. Any artists reading this should Stay away from the ‘African…….. lane. I’m just saying.

Ng’ang’ana is record that was produced by Dillie and has reggae vybe to. This is a record that can definitely get some plays on my ipod. Accorind to Nameless, Nameless “Ng’ang’ana is about celebrating the hustle…the hustle continues”

X-Mathare Feat Sultan – Bembeleza

X-Mathare_1

The last time we featured X-Mathare was with the slept on but dope record feat Kidis Kuche. They just sent our team this new record that features Sultan and produced by Mobiz at Thunder Sounds.

Nice groove to the track by X-Mathare…Feeling it? You’ll be able to hear more from X-Mathare who are working on their debut album coming out sometime this year.

Professor Jay Ft Diamond- Kipi Sijasikia (**GetMziki Exclusive)

23678a1cbd3862f68021e422e2b38a8c

Veterna Bongo artist Professor Jay has been keeping busy during the first quarter of 2014 by featuring in various artists records. This week he released his latest offering that features the current king of Bongo R & B Diamond on the chorus.

Kipi Sijasikia literally translates to “What haven’t I heard” and was produced by P.Funk Majani. Professor Jay had me cracking with the line “Wanathani kila Jogoo akiwika ni Asubuhi”. I’ve been bumping this heavy since it dropped.

Everything is on point on this new Professor Jay record . BANGER!

Abbas- Mchizi

Abbas Kubaff

Abbas Kubaff is a lyrical beast when it comes to those lyrics. His musical artistry is beyond words. A few years ago me and Dan Mixa were on the verge of releasing a mixtape with Abbas but due to various unforeseen circumstances the project was never released.  Maybe someday, I can share to the world some of the dope unreleased records we have sitting on our drives. The best way to describe this song is a comment from G. Rongi on the video’s Youtube page

hip hop ilikua dead in their head but alive in our life juu tunai live nasi kubahatisha,salute 5star General,Abbas na hi ram nika Reggie noble na Eric sermon,yooo realty check

Shilole – Paka La Bar (GetMziki Exclusive **)

Shilole is making some noise in Tanzania lately and I can see why, when you listen to this classic thats almost a mix of Bongo Flava and taarab it makes sense (or even a mix of kingwedu). Paka la bar (direct translation would be Bar Cat lol) ideally just means a dude who is always on the scene. I guess its safe to say that women no longer like the “paka la bar”

Enjoy this big tune.

Elani – Milele

There is some amazing music coming from the East African region that doesn’t really need to be boxed in a certain genre. What I know is that it’s dope records that showcase amazing artist and producer skills. If you do not have Elani’s “Jana Usiku”, “Barua ya Dunia”, “Hapo Zamani” and “Mahindi” on your music player, you’re missing out on good quality music.

Milele is an amazing record that Elani fans can add to their hit records music catalog…..

Size 8 – Yuko Na Wewe

This is new audio and video by Gospel artist Size 8 where she jumps on a reggae vybe beat for some great record. Size 8 definitely shows everyone out there that she can reinvent herself and still come out strong…..

Enjoy…..

Viola Karuri ft Collo – Milele (*GetMziki Exclusive)

Viola Karuri

Viola Karuri calls herself an Afro pop singer. From her bio at violakaruri.com “she started singing at an early age in school choral productions. While in High School, she and some friends formed a girl group called “Sobriety” that comprised of 5 girls. After completing high school, the group was signed by a Record Company – Shielton Entertainment (now TruBlaq Entertainment) – and were in the process of recording their first album when Viola received her acceptance into the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. In January 2001, Viola moved to Boston to pursue an education in Music. While there, she schooled with Kenyan artist Eric Wainaina and toured with him promoting his Award-winning album, “Sawa Sawa”.

Viola best describes the song. “Milele is a love song that was inspired by an eavesdropping situation. My gals and I had gone out and we overheard this guy throwing some major lines at this woman. We even stopped talking because of how good they were! So this song is my imagined version of their story!

Relaxed, top down music . Great, great track.. loving it!

Fuse ODG ft. Sean Paul – Dangerous Love (**GetMziki Exclusive)

artworks-000072907377-r65aim-t500x500

It’s no secret that Fuse ODG can make hit records. On this new banger records he grabs International superstar Sean Paul for a dangerous collabo that talks about love.

What else can be said about this. Djs can now give the overplayed Fuse ODG records a break and play this big tune now ;). This is a straight to Serato addition…….

Enjoy
