Sol Generation musician Nviiri the Story Teller recently dropped his debut EP dubbed ‘Kitenge'.
‘Kitenge’ is a six-track EP featuring Kenyan artists; Sanaipei Tande, Khaligraph Jones, Bensoul, and Sauti Sol.
The EP really shines a light on Nviiri’s excellent music writing skills. It shows his ability to write captivating stories which references back to his stage name. Apart from the written words, he does shine when delivering vocals for each track on the EP.
‘Kitenge’ EP is a complete body of work that tells a perfect love story gone sour with each track feeding from the previous track. The first track which is ‘Baridi’ featuring Sanaipei is a slightly upbeat song sang from the perspective of two lovers who are at a honeymoon period of the relationship.
‘Mae Wendi’ which is the second track, is a slow jam where Nviiri addresses how lucky he feels to be with a person who completes him.
The third song dubbed ‘Kitenge’ addresses the challenges he has faced in his journey of love, singing that they have become like the couples who wear matching kitenge’s to signify the permanency of their love.
‘Niko Sawa’ which features Bien talks about how cheating allegations led to fights which led to separation and now he wishes that she would come back so that they can mend their relationship.
‘Bembeleza’ is a jam about the aftermath of a broken relationship where Nviiri is begging the person he was with to come back so that they can fix the relationship.
‘Birthday Song’ featuring Sauti Sol, Bensoul, and Khaligraph Jones is the last jam on the EP. The jam whose visuals dropped a few days ago is about letting go of all the bad vibes and celebrating your birthday. The song has been received well and already has over 137,000 views on YouTube. The EP is currently available on most streaming sites.
