Celebrated Kenyan music group H_art the Band has finally released the much-awaited ‘Watabonga’ video featuring renowned Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones.
‘Watabonga’ is a Swahili phrase that loosely translates to ‘They’ll Speak’. In the song, the group notes that not everyone is always happy when one finds true love.
'Watabonga' produced by super producer Gituamba is a proclamation of love to your partner amidst all the noise, drama, rumors and/or hurdles. It is a re-affirmation that you will always choose them no matter the circumstance.
Explaining the inspiration behind the video, renowned videographer Enos Olik said “Both artists having come from humble backgrounds and working their way to the top, we wanted this video to inspire and to tell a story of Grass to Grace."
Wachira 'aka Skoko' Gatama; the Poet for the band and also the brains behind the video Concept went ahead to add that, "To have a dream is just the beginning. Starting out we used to walk miles almost every day to make ends meet and today, we hired a chopper for a full day just to shoot a video. Mind you, we didn't even board it."
‘Watabonga’ was co-written by H_art the Band and Sol Generation’s Bensoul.
Barely an hour after it premiered, the video is doing well online with over 8,000 views on YouTube.
