Oh my goodness, I have to accept I have slacked on posting about our fabulous music industry. Seriously guys, have you ever taken time just to appreciate the amazing Kenyan Musicians we have like Fena, Mayonde, Kagwe and so many other musicians who I am yet to feature on my blog. Are there any fabulous musicians you would love for me to feature? Or any new music you think needs to be heard drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So from the title you have an idea I am talking about our very own boys Sauti Sol who have been buzzing on the airwaves with their latest single Nerea.
Personally all the controversy around the song digresses from the fact that it’s such a great jam. Kind of reminds me of their first album Mwanzo when I absolutely fell in love with their sound. I remember going to all their little concerts and just not being able to contain my excitement.
It’s just amazing how far they have come and that they are touring 6 states in the AMEROS!!! (America lol) It’s pretty crazy don’t you think? If you are from America and you happen to read my blog and you are obsessed with the band like I am please tag me on Instagram, Facebook or even on Snapchat (@jayorskerea) I really need to be part of that experience.
That being said THEY JUST GOT NOMINATED AS BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT AT THE BET AWARDS! The caps and the bold is just to emphasize how epic this really is. Against people like AKA , Yemi Alade, Stone Boy, Fally Ipupa and Wiz Kid I think it’s such an honour as the only act in East Africa to be recognized amongst all the talented artists.
Well in boys, this is just such a great day for the Kenyan Music industry. We support you all the way and wish you all the best as you tour and on the 28th of June we will be saying a big prayer so you can bring home the trophy.
THIS IS OUR NATION!
STAY PROUD, YOU SEXY HUMANS!
