New Releases: Matata, Stivo Simple Boy and newcomer Me Paramount

This week has been a great week of releases.

  1. Matata- Mapema

Matata continues to deliver great content and they are back with a new single titled ‘Mapema’ in Kiswahili, which translates to ‘very early’. In their description, Matata uses, “Mapema, very fast” as an ode to Kenyan vintage stylist Diman Mkare.

The group shared, “The phrase “Mapema very fast” can be used in many ways. It can be used to express a feeling of happiness, fulfillment, disbelief & affirmation…As a way of celebrating Kenyan urban culture and telling Kenyan stories through Music and Dance, MATATA created this song to appreciate Sheng , which even though is not an official language it’s widely spoken, especially by the youth.”

‘Mapema’ follows a style that was popular during the kapuka era in Kenya; and in true Matata style, they have an array of choreographed moves in their video.

The video is shot in the streets and is a continuity of their ode to Diman Mkare as reported. The Matata crew is donned in some very colorful vintage suits and the buildings in the streets they chose to shoot in are very complimenting of their vintage swag.

2. Kaka Empire (King Kaka, Femi One and Jadi) – Deni

Kaka Empire pulled a sol generation on us and the fire might just be too hot to handle. The crew at Kaka Empire has released a new single titled ‘Deni’ and a monied video for it with a special cameo by Nick Mutuma.

The Kaka Empire crew comprising of King Kaka, Femi One and the band Jadi featured in ‘Deni’ a braggadocio song that is a mix of sounds, difficult to pinpoint.

The song is a great re-introduction of the Kaka Empire talent pool and is worth a listen.

3.Stivo Simple Boy, VDJ Jones, Virusi Mbaya, Phlexible – Love Ya Mtaa

Fast-rising Kenyan rapper Stivo Simple Boy has dropped a new video dubbed ‘Love ya Mtaa’ featuring VDJ Jones, Virusi Mbaya and Phlexible.

‘Love Ya Mtaa’ is a song that advocates for appreciation of one’s background as reported.  In the new release, the artistes remind us that we should always respect the hoods we come from.

In the opening verse, Stivo Simple Boy raps about different estates and what they are known for, adding that in as much as we may not be proud of estates we grew up in, we should not forget them completely.

“Utamu wa mtaa si kuhama mtaa buy ndai kali ingia na hummer mtaa, wasikuchoche watakutoa huku ghetto kitu hawajui ni hawewezi kukutoa ughetto,” the song’s lyrics read in part.

Listening to the new jam, you get to appreciate the fact that Stivo Simple Boy is growing and improving his craft with every new project.

4. Me Paramount – Tabasamu

Newcomer from Narok Me Paramount has dropped a new release dubbed ‘Tabasamu’. His sound is heavily influenced by Taarab and Bongo sound, as the mellow beats and his honey vocals tease the beat. The act first got his start in the music business thanks to the Music for Social Impact program fronted by the Octopizzo Foundation and U.S Embassy.

According to the comments, Me Paramount to set to blow up. Pay attention 2020 might just be his year.
