Who is Exray Taniua?
Tonnie Kinyanjui, popularly known as Exray, is a celebrated Kenyan musician. He was born in 1998 in Eastlands, Nairobi where he spent a better part of his childhood. The singer successfully completed his primary education at Imara Primary school. In 2016, he sat for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) at Uhuru Boys High School.
Exray Taniua shelved his ambition of joining college and decided to pursue music as a career. He set up a movie shop from where he gained knowledge and skills on various subjects in the entertainment industry.
Exray Taniua started out as a spoken word artist and actor before transitioning into being a musician. In a bid to explore and maximize his talent, the youngster joined Christ The King Catholic church’s drama club. This is where he made friends with Odi Wa Murang’a and Maddox. The trio, later on, formed Boondocks Gang.
Boondocks Gang emerged at a time when the Kenyan music industry was experiencing a revolution in its identity. The genre of Gengetone, a form of local Hip-Hop that is characterized by conversational rap using a local dialect known as ‘Sheng’, had earned popularity and taken over as Kenya’s top-ranking music.
The band joined the wave and released a Gengetone track dubbed ‘Rieng’. The song was treated to a warm reception by the fans and gained millions of views. This laid a good foundation for the band in the music industry.
Exray Taniua together with his friends as a band followed up their debut track with other songs that equally performed incredibly well. The band invested heavily in the quality of their songs; a factor that catalyzed their success.
The three-man band climbed up the charts and started occupying top positions in various music charts. They became one of the most sought-after Gengetone bands in the country. Not only were their songs performing tremendously well on various music streaming platforms, but also the artists were heavily booked for live performances.
The members of Boondocks Gang, after attracting so much success, switched focus to building their careers as independent artists. This was not to mean that the band had broken up, but each of the artists was allowed to brand himself as a solo musician. Exray Taniua had a successful run as a solo artist.
The singer’s success stretched beyond Kenya to foreign countries. At one point, Exray Taniua announced that he was working on a collaboration with Simi from Nigeria, although the song is not yet out, his fans are hopeful that he will release it soon. The ‘Patanisho’ hitmaker is yet to release an album as a solo artist.
