What is RnB music? Joe Thomas has to be the perfect example, along with several other American musicians. Capital Lifestyle ventured out to the Kenyan market to sample some of the RnB talent.
Kenya is awash with genge, hip-hop, afro-fusion, kapuka, taarab, etc. Though several songs on this type of radar are fused with rhythm and blues, there is a telling gap. Here are our top three picks for Kenyan RnB sounds.
Strumming his guitar and charming the ladies with his vocal talent, delicate scripting and corn-rows, Harry is number one on our list.
From a musical Kenyan family that currently resides in the United States, Vickie has taken after her brother Bamboo in the massive industry.
The jury is still out on this one. On whether his music is RnB or neo soul. Despite the use of guitar, Kevin’s soothing baritone is most definitely bluesy.
