Ethic Music career
The group has created a name for itself in the Kenyan music industry, and is even credited as being the brains being the new wave of Kenyan music dubbed ‘Gengetone’. But where did Ethic start? It all started in May 2018, when the group dropped their first song ‘Lamba Lolo’. The song was a major hit, and thanks to it, Ethic managed to cut a niche for themselves in the Kenyan music industry.
‘Lamba Lolo’ served as an appetizer for more to come from the group. A few months later, Ethic were back with ‘Position’ featuring renowned music group The Kansoul. After this, the group went on to produce one hit after the other, and have managed to work with some of the biggest names in the local industry and internationally.
Slightly over a year after debuting the Kenyan music industry, Ethic has produced twelve songs namely; Lamba Lolo, Saba, Instagram, Position featuring The Kansoul, Figa, Figa remix featuring Konshens, Pandana, Ntolee, Chapa Chapa, Fyeka, Dala Dala featuring Otile Brown, and Thao featuring Boondocks Gang.
As the pioneers of ‘Gengetone’, Ethic inspired other young music groups to venture into this genre of music, and a year later, it has taken the Kenyan music industry by storm. Some of the groups that followed Ethic’s footsteps include; Ochungulo Family, Boondocks Gang, Sailors, Rico Gang among others.
The four members of the group have kept details of their personal life private, and therefore, it is hard to tell if any of them is in a relationship.
