My boy Howee sent me this track a while back but truthfully with being busy I slept on it for a while. But last week I started playing it over and over again and it hit me – apart from STL, this is probably the next best EAST AFRICAN female lyricist ive heard in a long time. I mean this girl can spit no doubt. If I was to count right about now I would put STL on my top fav fives, Keko and then possibly Nakaya.
Initially I was like this chile sounds like a dude, but once you get past the hoarse voice you will realize the songtress actually has a message and carries a crazy flow with it. I like the local dialect intergration (ALWOO) which means a cry for help – some conscious rap will always get you far. Look what its done for Ukoo fulani mau mau…
KEKO is a young up and coming Hip hop star from Uganda whose rise to fame came early this year (2010) with the releases of ‘’Fallen heroes’’ a duet with the Hip hop canvas 2010 ”How we do” and of course her first single Alwoo(cry for help) which we are debuting here today.
