P-UNIT just dropped this track this week which features a Swedish based songstress called Alicios. The new hit track “Mobimba” brings to life a meticulous fusion of the trios “Genge” style of music set against a background of an upbeat Pan African tempo.
Alicios who is originally from Congo is popularly known for her breakout hit “Mpita Njia” which she collaborated with Juliana to deliver a powerful hit in the East African region. Honestly it took me a while to realize that she wasnt from the East African region, but once you realize that Swahili is one of the spoken languages in Congo, then the argument about where she is from becomes null and void.
This track feels a like lingala meets Genge which seems fitting for these two (three) artists to have collaborated on. Its still too early for me to tell whether this will be in instant hit, it took me a while to get into it – but the track has legs and I can easily see it pick up around Summer.
