Kenya’s top female musician Akothee has dropped a new track dubbed ‘Mwììtuasa’.
Unlike all other her other songs, ‘Mwììtuasa’ is in Kamba, and listening to it, you’d think Akothee is a native of Ukambani.
According to Akothee’s description, the song is all about women working hard to make ends meets, and ensure their bills are paid.
“Every woman should know that no amount of pity party would ever put a smile or food on the table, once you have left your parents home in the name of relationship, your life & the life of your family members ( your children) remains your responsibility. It doesn't matter the kind of work you will do to make ends meet , all life cares about is BILLS MUST BE PAID , BE STRONG,” she posted.
In the video shot in a village in Ukambani, Akothee is dressed like a Kamba native, and performs the roles expected of her as a lady in that part of the country.
Although many may not understand the message being passaged, the beats are danceable, listening to it, you get the urge to shake your body a little bit.
The song has elicited massive reactions online, with many questioning Akothee’s deep of understanding of the Kamba language. However, she noted that “Wait until you see me perform this mwiituasa live, you will know my blood is kamba with a Luo skin”.
