Talented Kenyan artist Bensoul has finally released his highly anticipated EP dubbed ‘Medicine’.
The four track EP, which comprises soulful jams including ‘Medicine’, ‘Ntala Nawe’, ‘Stereo’ and ‘Sugar Rush’ takes us back to the happy times we all enjoyed classical Kenyan pop music.
Bensoul takes us through the journey of true love with each song delivering a distinct soulful feel while highlighting his authentic lyrical ability.
‘Medicine’ which is the first song in the EP and also the album title, is an upbeat love song, in which Bensoul says that he has been found to be ailing from a disease of love, and goes ahead to attribute her love to be his cure.
The second song ‘Ntala Wewe’ is a slow soulful jam, with haunting love lyrics. Here Bensoul encourages his love not to be worried because tomorrow he may make it. Once he makes it he promises to eat with her because she stuck with him through good and bad times.
‘Stereo’; the third song, is an upbeat jam which takes us back to classical Kenyan pop music. In this song, Bensoul celebrates his love, as he insists that he has found a good person whose love is so sweet like stereo.
The fourth and last song in the EP ‘Sugar Rush’, is a nostalgic love song with a storyline about an enduring love. Bensoul compares his long term lover to a sugar rush as he reminds her how far they have come and insists that after all this time, when the sun sets, the moon will announce how much he loves her.
