Since their breakthrough last year, the group Ochungulo family made up of Nelly The Goon, Benzema (Alejandro) and Dmore have continued to redefine Kenyan music by riding the Gengetone wave with hits like ‘Na Iwake’ as well as by being quick to release songs after popular phrases.

The group has recently been featured on a new song dubbed ‘Parte after Parte’ remix alongside the Boondocks gang, Rekles, Zzero Sufuri and Magix Enga. The song is a remix of the now-viral song with the same name by a Ugandan artist known as Big Tril. The song was released months ago but only became a hit two weeks ago in Kenya and since then Kenyans have gone crazy with the phrase.

The hitmakers gave new life to phrases like ‘Bora Uhai’ which loosely translates to ‘so long as there is life’  with their 2018 hit song by the same name which has since garnered over 500,000 views on YouTube.

In 2018 nominated member of Nairobi County council (MCA) Mary Njambi became an internet sensation after saying the popular phrase hiyo ni krimino, Ochungulo Family did not waste any time in making the phrase into a song which is now one o their most popular hits.

‘Kaa Na Mamayako’ is a Kenyan slang, stated by the widely celebrated West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo and made into a song which was released in July of 2019 by Ochungulo Family. The song is a popular club banger which has over one million views on YouTube.

‘Mbigijii Imekulwa Na Ndogi’ is the groups latest recreation. The phrase came from a young Meru girl whose heavy accent surprised many. The girl in the viral video could be heard saying “Mbingii imekurwa na ndogi” instead of “Big G imekulwa na dogi”. The song has over 600, 000 views so far.

If their current trend is anything to go by, there will be many more viral phrase hits to come from Ochungulo Family

Speaking to The Sauce, Ochungulo Family previously revealed that the source of their name is Ochungulo, the Dholuo name for ants.
