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.
Ginx is a movement/ Youth from Korogocho that are currently working with an organization called Uwezo Awareness that Wawesh founded in 2007. Uwezo works with youth in the slums enabling them via arts and Information technology. Some of the by products of this initiative include this track that I stumbled upon and just had to share. I will share a little more info on Uwezo in future for anyone who wants to get involved or to learn more about the initiative, for now please enjoy this killer joint.

I’ve said it so many times while showcasing various artists and producers. There are artists who have natural talent and make their way up from being popular to super-stars and mega-stars. The potential and energy is there and it’s just a matter of getting the right team and embracing a go to producer and sticking with them for a while . One of those artists who in my books has the potential to be a superstar is French Boy. What I see lacking for him is a naturing producer and a lack of a strong online presence.
So, when I first got the track this past week, I saw the production credits listed as Wawesh Mjanja and I was ecstatic. I really don’t wanna go through his whole production and artist management portfolio, but Wawesh is an amazing producer and above all knows what to do in terms of pushing records, creating brands and taking artists from point A to Z.
On Curly B, which they describe as a mixture of Zouk and Soul, Wawesh handles the production duties while French B lends his vocals to music I like describing to as laid back, with a party groove to it. This is very different indeed, and I like it…
Ooh, one other thing, we have the download link to the song 🙂

There is no denying how I feel about Sauti Sol, my general biase has always been evident by the frequent number of posts I have on this website with their classic tunes. Real talk though is I know none of these guys and have never met or been acquainted to any of them. But I just love their music. PERIOD. I mean dang these folks make good music thanks to BLAO and crew this is probably the greatest group of all time in Kenya in my opinion.
I recently asked Wawesh (who runs Blao and Imekubalika and PENYA) in that order to give me 40% of these cats future sales immediately the step foot in the US. Ive seen many Kenyans perform in my life time, I am yet to see Sauti Sol perform live but I honestly believe these guys GOT NEXT… Meaning if they stay consistent and stay doing what they do – these are going to be the next Kenyan International super stars.
ps. I will update the mp3 file for Sol lovers later this week
