Zamani - Rekles ft Odi wa Murang’a and Nelly The Goon
‘Zamani’ is a Swahili word which translates to ‘A Long Time Ago’. The upbeat Gengetone jam expounds on the rise of promiscuous girlfriends who live expensive lifestyles but still cohabit with their naive boyfriends. The song is a wake-up call for the naive boyfriends, not to believe the fake hype, as these three talented artists inform them that there is a sponsor who sustains their girlfriends’ expensive lifestyle. ‘Zamani’ is currently trending on YouTube at number eight with over 107,000 views.
I want - Chris Kaiga ft Mutoriah
‘I Want’ is a feel-good jam which covers several important themes including a young man's quest for love and the steps he takes to pursue it.
These themes range from his fame to his wealth, to the numerous interactions he has with multiple characters in his journey. Chris uses the song to talk about his 'somewhat' successful journey through the dating scene and how he has been able to surmount all the obstacles.
The song also alludes to a common Kenyan playground rhyme "I Want I Want" that carries nostalgic memories for the artist and his audience. ‘I want’ which was released a few days ago is currently trending on YouTube at number four with over 105,000 views.
Tosha - Moji ShortBabaa
‘Tosha’ is the second single off Moji's second major project 'Cheza Gospel'. The upbeat jam alludes back to the scripture from James 4:2 which states ‘You do not have because you do not ask God.’ Moji opens up to God about all the desires of his heart, which include; a desire for upward social mobility as he declares that he has had enough of his current problems.
