The Kenyan music industry has seen an upward trend since the #PlayKeMusic hashtag. Every other week artists are dropping new songs and while some of them may not be on the YouTube trending section, there are amazing songs. Here are some new and amazing Kenyan songs to listen to this week.
Serro – Ya Dunia
If there is a song that should be on repeat mode is Ya Dunia by Serro. I didn’t know who Serro was until I stumbled on her music. The talented Afro-Soul singer songwriter has done several tracks and is a great live performer. Ya Dunia is a deep song produced by Mutoriah and Shot by KG Brian. If you wanted music with content, here it is.
Mankind – Fame
I wasn’t sure whether this song should come at the top or after Ya Dunia, but either way, this worth the repeat mode as well. Mankind is a music duo managed by Peter Nduati’s Pine Creek. Listening to Mankind’s songs will give you the impression of international music and Fame is no different. If you like ‘Hall of Fame‘ by The Script and Will.I.am you will love this song. Its shot by Enos Olik.
Manio ft Meryl Paige – Light My Way
If you are wondering what happened after Amos and Josh broke up, well, here it is. Josh changed his name to Manio. He has gone ahead to release Ordinary Folk and Light My Way is his second from his upcoming “Mind of A Married Man”. The song is rich in terms of content, vocals and even the video and is worth every bit of your second.
King Kaka ft Cassidy – Far Away
I bet you have listened to this track already and if you haven’t, well, head to YouTube and check it out. King Kaka needs no introduction. He is one Kenyan artist making move after move and has so far collaborated with 3 American Artists. Far Away is one of my best jams in the album.
Mr Seed – Simama
It would be true to say that Mr.Seed has found his music mojo after leaving Bahati’s EMB Records. Mr. Seed has also changed his music style if the last two songs are to go by. The song is produced by Alexis and Mr.Seed’s Label Starborn Empire and shot by Twister Black.
