We all promised ourselves to approach this year positively no matter what hit us on our way! With that in mind here are some highlights of what is hot and trendy in the Kenyan music at the moment.

Bensoul Feat Sauti Sol, Nviiri The Storyteller & Mejja – Nairobi Sol Generation dropped a clip of ‘Nairobi’ song over the holiday period in reference to the Nairobi dating scene. Now the video is out and is the trending topic in Kenya. The storytelling is on a different scale, the video well thought of not forgetting Mejja’s contribution.

Khaligraph Jones Feat Sarkodie – Wavy East and West Africa Hip hop heavyweights meet up and drop some bars. It’s none other than Khaligraph Jones and Sarkodie.The two spit some fire bars, unimaginable flow backed by a hard-hitting trap beat produced by Motif the Don. They talk their minds about their position in the game, their wealth, and always throw shade to fellow rappers.

Gwaash Feat Boondocks Gang ( Maddox) K4Kanali & Hush – Tight n Tifin Are we still on that vibe that Gengetone was a passing cloud? Well! The plays running this scene seem to be well-armed for the battle. Gwaash is capable of putting together an all-star team that delivers bars and hit songs. They dropped a song dubbed ‘Tight & Tifin’. The crew spits about their weekend shenanigans and how they woo the ladies to their corner. Please grab your sheng dictionary!

Bahati Feat Prezzo – Baby Boo Former Church star Bahati seems to be grabbing collabos from Industry heavyweights, and it is Prezzo’s turn. The love inspired hit sees the two talents singing about their girlfriends and people they are eyeing.

Buruklyn Boyz – Nairobi Thanks to their recent release dubbed ‘Nairobi’, It seems the current drill wave from the UK to the USA is finally in Kenya Drill, a style of Trap music defined by its dark, violent, lyrical content and ominous trap-influenced beats. The Buruklyn Boyz representing Buru Buru Ajay and Mr Right are hitting the Baz hard. They sing about living in the hood and aspirations to leave for a chance to make it elsewhere.
