We rarely do this but there’ always a first time for everything and this is a first. We first showcased this record exactly the same time last year and with them just releasing the video last week, it’s perfect timing to showcase the record again for everyone out there. Video was directed by Sinema Films. I know some people are visual and appreciate records more with videos, so here we go..
Song is still nice…

Look I like Sanaipei, I used to love her but now I just like her – my feelings had to change a little 🙂 I guess I had to grow up and get over the infatuation. The point here is I have a general bias for any material she puts out, and especially when she collaborates with my main man Wawesh – then BAM its like magic. Something truly magical happens when Sana gets into the booth with Wesh. The last time the two were in the studio together this magical thing happened – Mfalme Wa Mapenzi
That said the current joint thats a dubstep/reggae/afrosoul/fusion is just too nice – Keep seeing Sanaa am all over this track.
Its been difficult to figure out how to put these three artists on one collage without really over shadowing the other. Really honestly I have have been sitting on this song for a few days because creatively I was trying to figure out which one of the three will I highlight more than the other in order to bring their vocal qualities forward. You know like a Destiny Child album would have Beyonce somewhere in the middle because she is the lead singer, but with this collabo its been difficult for me to put my finger on that little detail.
I therefore gave up on trying to put anything visual to represent the ARTISTES.KE movement. Artistes.ke is a once of project that comprises Collo (Kleptomaniacs), Sanaipei (formerly of SEMA), and Kanji (Milele). The hook and chorus is being performed by a new artists called Kabi who seems to hold her tones pretty well.
The track was produced by Masha a.k.a Ghost with executive oversight by Zari Media who aptly put this track together specifically for the Holiday season while appropriately titling the track “This Season”. I would assume there is more where this came from because it sets up for a nice Holiday album.
As much as I like this track, the beat seems to have been sampled of Jeremih – Break Up to Make up (watch video here). But its nothing major though people sample all the time, very few sample new music though. Either way – the track is tight. Enjoy
