Vanessa Mdee Feat. KO- Nobody But Me

Vanessa_Getmziki

Vanessa has graced our pages before with various hit records here. She’s been releasing various records recently but none of them really resonated with the team. However with “Nobody but me” she’s found a record that is different and worth featuring here.

Written by Vanessa Mdee and Ntokozo ‘K.O’ Mdluli and Produced by Nahreel “Nobody but me” is a anthem for the ladies. The chorus goes like

He don’t love nobody, nobody else but me.
He don’t want nobody, nobody else but me.
He won’t touch nobody, nobody else but me.
Nobody but me, me, me, me

Ko goes hard on the verses hahha

Viscous playboy, when it comes to matters of the heart I was a bit disabled.

Give it a few spins and you will find yourself singing to the chorus.

Jaya Feat. Lady Jaydee – Sasa

jaya

This is Kenyan songstress Jaya’s second release “SASA” (Right now) off her up-coming debut solo record. Her youtube page says that the song is about desisting from waiting for the proverbial “tomorrow”, and doing/feeling/thinking/”worrying” about today.

I like this. The record has a upbeat East African sound with just the right amount of dance to it.

Watch the video below:


Ivory Namara Feat Kelvin – I See You

I didn’t know anything about Kenyan Ivory Namara until a few months ago when I heard this record. Ivory was one of the contestants in the airtel trace music star competition who made it to the top nine. When I heard this record a few moths ago, a couple of things stuck to me instantly. One was the amazing tone and voice of Ivory and the natural feel good emotion in her voice. Two is the production on the record and the final mastered products. Fast forward and I have a folder of Atwal records that consistently get played in my music playlist. Remember the Name people: Atwal

Why lie, If I had a record company both Ivory Namara and Atwal would be on my list of an artist and producer to sign. I know haters are gonna hate and say the sound in “I See You” sounds like ABC’s sound, but I’m all about good music, quality production and the ability to create overwhelmingly consistent listening to records.

“I See You” is one of those records you can consistently listen to.

Mayonde – Angels

meyounde_dbasicsafrica.com_

I have a few songs of Mayonde in my music playlist including Isukuti Love and Rise. I like what she’s doing in terms of slowly building a fanbase and releasing that good quality music. With the quality of music she has, she should be doing more in terms of pushing her records. People out there need to listen to her soulful great dope voice over perfect instrumentals.

Angels is a dedication to all lost ones and how we need to treasure and celebrate them.

K-Letta- Lemme Know

k_letta

Nearly three years has passed since we last featured K-Letta on the site with ‘African Girls”. Back then his EP was about to drop but I never hard anything back. His latest official single from his forthcoming EP ‘Back 2 Basics’ was produced by Produced by Nairobi (Rap Damu) for Pacho Entertainment.

Origarmi Boy Presents the brand new single ‘Lemme Know’ by K-Letta. Produced by Naiboi (Rap Damu) for Pacho Entertainment.

Released to Radio on 4th May, 2015…

After a long hiatus, artist, songwriter, entertainment entrepreneur K-Letta returns with a bang! Effortlessly riding this smooth, fresh sounding number he sounds like he’s not missed a step. If this first single is the yardstick then his forthcoming EP ‘Back 2 Basics’ will definitely be worth the wait and an exciting listen.

This is a decent track and a bouncy beat. It’s not ahit record but I can see people vybing to it.

Wangechi- Cardiac Arrest

Wangeshi_It's-Another_One

Here is a new record from Wangechi after her tragic accident. From the press release Wangechi took a long time before she got back to writing and recording music until she felt it was time to open up and express herself on a song.Gladly she was ready and she recorded her first song after the unfortunate life event she had last year.Coming back strong and wiser she recorded “cardiac arrest” which she terms as a redemption song,a song she feels like opened up her heart from what she has always wanted to say after the accident.Serving also as a dedication to the friend she lost in the accident they had.

Wangechi can definitely spit and that something music fans know. My own personal opinion is that she’s still trying to find out what style best suits her persona and until then it will be hit or miss type of records from her. Her producer Provoke should have narrowed down everything by now.

Listen to Cardiac arrest


Papa Denis and Daddy Owen – Foundation

papadeno1512015

I heard about this video way due to it’s high budget. Basically the artist was hyping up the video more than the record. Upcoming artists should avoid the mentality of “Music videos Make songs Hot” and it’s one of the failure many artists fall into. Gospel music legend Daddy Owen teams up with one of the future stars of Gospel music Papa Dennis.

Enjoy!!!!

Atemi ft lady Jay Dee – Moyo

atemi2

Kenyan soul diva Atemi Oyungu and Tanzania’s sultry songstress Lady Jaydee team up on this vocally powerful love song ‘Moyo’.
According to her Reverbnation bio

One of the finest soul artists from East Africa, Atemi Oyungu began singing at the age of 10. She first made her mark in the music scene with the all-girl group, Intu. In 2003 Atemi joined Kenyan sensation, Eric Wanaina, as an assistant vocal harmony provider for his band. Together with Eric and the Mapinduzi band she performed in Zimbabwe, Ghana, Sauti Za Busara Festival in Zanzibar, Festival Mundial in Holland, The North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland, Big Brother Africa in South Africa and at the Annual German Ambassadors Conference in Germany. She played a major role in Wainaina’s musical production, Luanda, and later in Kenya’s biggest theatre production yet, Mo Faya. Atemi has been also known as a successful TV host of an all-Africa TV show, Africa Rising.

A mix of neo-soul and Afro-fusion, Atemi’s sound has been described as that of “Miriam Makeba meeting Jill Scott.” She is currently working on her second studio album, to be released later this year.

Moyo was Written by Atemi Oyungu and the Music production and Video directed by Rkay.

Really good music by Atemi. This is smooth all around. This is just good music for all ears.

Bamboo- Too much Potential

Bamboo, the African Bantu, has been away from the music scene for a while and although he was quiet his skills on the mic have become betetr as evident by this new single called “Too Much Potential”.

We’ve done a few projects with Bamboo in the past and I can tell you he got crazy metaphors and endless bars. For music fans, then this is one of those tracks that stay in constant rotation in your playlist.

Listen to the song below:


Redsan Feat AY- Easy

redsan

This is new collabo from Kenya’s Redsan Featuring Tanzania’s AY. I just got this record on my email today and decided to post it for everyone out there. Redsan and AY have been featured on the site numerous times with various hit records and one or two misses. Their past music catalogs can be found HERE. But as the saying goes, you just have to keep on releasing those records with the hope that a few will stick on to the masses.

Consider this music download Mondays

Rabbit King Kaka ft Rich Mavoko – Njoo

King_Kaka_Rich_Mavoko

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 it’s worth these new upcoming KE vs TZ collabos are going to be thrilling.

Shaa- For You

I’ve always been a fan of Shaa and her music and it’s a good thing, since she’s always releasing those nice, mellow dope records that suit her perfectly.

If this is the first time you’re hearing about Shaa, do a quick search on the site for her amazing work. I’m really feeling this record. Enough said!!!!

P Unit Feat Yemi Alade- Different

p_unit_img_01

This is something new from P unit that was released this week.On different they enlist the services of Yemi Alade who is an award-winning Nigerian afro pop/R&B artiste.
I love what P-Unit is doing with the whole collabo thing with various artists across the world.

Different is something new from the Trio, and those feeling it can always take listen to their latest album “Wagenge Hao Tena” if you can get a hold of it. I did a quick search and could not find it on itunes or any other online stores which definitely shows some slacking on their promotional team.

Nonini feat Didge – Tudunde

unnamed

Nonini is currently collaborating a lot with Beat ya Keggah a renowned producer based in Boston, US. The string of hits includes the track we are posting here today. It’s nice to hear Didge back in the studio doing his thing, as we’ve always felt he is one of the more talented male vocalist in Kenya.

TID ft Nazizi – Pressure

tid

TID has been releasing records in the past few months but nothing really has stuck on to his many fans. As an artist this can sometimes lead to frustration and various change ups in producers, music and style. Everyone knows TID can make great records. The question is why has nothing that he’s recently released not resonated with the fans. The question to that can take weeks to talk about.

One thing I know for certain is that in this fast paced world and microwave music, most music fans are all about the experience. Forget the days of making great music, leaning back and the records taking a life of their own. In this music world, artists have to push records thru the masses, doing shows and showcasing a body of work as compared to singles.

Either way, this is a new one from TID featuring ever looking good Nazizi.

Collo – What’s that Boys Name

Rapper Collo AKa King Wa Rap is back with a brand new record called ‘Collo’ (What’s That Boys Name). I’ve always been a huge fan of Collo since he’s music is what I call reality rap where anybody can relate to. The way he cleverly and artistically uses his words and develops a story to a song is something I always look forward to when I get his records.

The song was produced by Jack on the beat” and the visuals were done by Enos Olik.

Jaguar Feat Iyanya’s – One Centimeter (Remix)

Jaguar Iyanya CoverJaguar recently released the remix to his huge hit Once Centimeter. On the remix he grabs Nigerian male artiste Iyanya who adds his own vybe and twist to the record. I can see East African artists have realized the power or collabos and remixes. This is a great addition to any part starter playlist…

Ruby Band – Kisebu Sebu

kisebu sebu

I love discovering new artists and band across the EA region. One of the new artists that has really been popping is Ruby Band from Tanzania. The group is definitely on the right path in regards to choosing dope beats and with great vocal ability, I can see a bright future for the group.

Kisebu sebu is one of thsoe records that you listen to all day.

Mbuvi – Ndukatavye Mundu

mbuvivic

I’m in the process of currently compiling the GetMziki October promo only and this record Ndukatavye Mundu by Mbuvi is one of the records that has been getting constant plays on my playlist. I’ve known Mbuvi for a minute now and I’m always amazed at his creativity and ability to create amazing dope records.

From his Youtube page “Ndukatavye Mundu is a song done based on a scriptural teaching done by Jesus found in the book of Matthew 6:1-3. Though scripturally based, it’s a song intended for the society at large since there are certain behavioral changes that a society needs to adopt in order to be progressive.”

Enjoy this amazing record

Kansoul – Nyongwa

CD

The Kansoul is a group composing of Madtraxx, Mejja and Kora. Given Madtraxx’s and Mejja’s extensive collabos, it’s far from a surprise that the duo have joined forces to for a super group. .Their first offering was with the record “Dabotap” which we featured in the GetMziki August Promo only series

The beat which has elements of Afro beats and dancehall took me by surprise. Nyongwa is different and unexpected, nothing like I’ve heard them do before. I like it.
