Rabbit goes ‘Gospel’


He is known as one of the finest poets we have in Kenya and with music that can be described as soulful and poetic. He was ushered in the limelight by his solo album titled ‘Orutu ya Masudi’ which had great hits like Dodoma feat Harry Kimani among other songs. Rabbit has consistently churned out great hits including Ligi soo, Adisia, Swahili Shakespear among others which have topped charts both locally and regionally.

In his latest song, he goes ‘gospel’ in a reflective song about his life, how far away he has been from God and how much he misses communing with him. What’s outstanding about the song is how genuine Rabbit sounds. He mentions Ekko Dydda’s (A gospel artiste) constant call that he needs to cross over. When an artiste opens up his personal life to the world, then that’s art. Rabbit opens up about his role as a father and husband, and how his mom’s sickness has been weighing him down. He says he wants God to heal his mother, but he shouldn’t come back to God for favors.

Well, he definitely challenges many gospel artistes who are struggling to write music that has relevant and impacting content. Beyond the beats, talk to us about your struggles, fears, concerns, hopes, aspiration etc.

Here at Capital FM we brand it a certified hit!

Artists make art for themselves. Art is an honest expression. Artists who pander to their fans by trying to make music “for” their fans make empty, transparent art. The true fan does not want you to make music for them, they want you to make music for you, because that’s the whole reason they fell in love with you in the first place. ~ Talib Kweli
