Kenyan singer Naiboi is kicking off his new year with some major collaborations.
Formerly known as Rapdamu, the “2 in 1” singer has scored a good one as he impressed Reggae royalty Morgan Heritage during the Wasafi Festival in Nairobi on New Year’s Eve.
Naiboi was among the few artists during the concert who managed to put out a good performance which has paid off and fans can now expect a Naiboi Morgan Heritage collabo in 2019. The news is a big deal for Naiboi who risen through the ranks to become an A-list musician.
