Celebrated Kenyan artiste Naiboi has dropped a new video dubbed ‘Best Man.
In ‘Best Man’, Naiboi showers himself with praise while at the same time hitting out at critics who’ve been questioning his music.
‘Best Man’ is a mix of several genres starting with Hip Hop where Naiboi drops bars and schools those questioning his music. Later in the song, ‘Best Man’ adopts an RnB beat.
“Been around for a while unaweza niita OG… Naiboi ndio the name niko game right now, na hawa marapper wanawrap magifts tu right now… Street is talking bull… kimakusudi, akili ni nywele feelings tuliachia Lucy,” the song’s lyrics read in part.
“…Si dai kuwa number one bora promoter akipiga simu bado anataka rap, phobia, marraper wengine nausea just coz nafanya kapuka haimanisha Hip hop nafia,”he added.
Nine hours after it premiered, the video is doing well online and has over 5,000 views on YouTube.
‘Best Man’ is Naiboi’s second song over the past month after he dropped ‘Black’ featuring Nyashinski.
‘Black’ is a feel good song that champions ‘Black’ heritage and underscores why we should be proud to be ‘Black’.
“Unacheki superhero on a mission yeah Black on black looking like a billionaire… Sibadiliki Melanin ju chini hakuna bleaching Black is beautiful hiyo ndo teaching Geuza thinking Ni ma-king tu na maqueen,” the song’s lyrics read in part.
