Members of the Highpitch Band Africa released their cover of the “Despacito” track by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber. The track that originally did not feature former Youtuber star Justin Bieber, became a mega-hit when the “Baby” crooner added his vocals to the track.
The Kenyan duo that forms the Highpitch Band Africa is gospel musicians with a number of tracks released online including “Big God” and now the popular “Despacito” cover. With their version of the latino track trending on Youtube, the high school buddies from Nanyuki could do more covers on their Youtube channel. Singing in Meru, the two highlight how beautiful the language can be, something many often overlook. Writing their own lines in fluent Meru, the track is worth a listen.
