Love is in the air in the month of February, and as we approach Valentine’s Day its time to celebrate all sorts of love.
Arguably one of the best musical partnerships in Kenya, especially on matters love songs; Otile Brown and Sanaipei Tande are at it again. This time around, the duo has dropped a song dubbed ‘Aiyana’ and it is a big tune thanks to the amazing vocals, and dope beats used.
Unlike their first song which is a ballad, this second collaboration has a more upbeat theme and oozes sex appeal. The chemistry between the two is perfect, they look so natural, you’d think they have been singing together for years.
This is the second time the musicians are working together according to Mdundo, and all their two projects have been amazing, perhaps they should consider working together more often.
Yemi Alade and Angelique Kidjo have finally released the visuals to their hit single ‘Shekere’ off Yemi’s album ‘Woman of Steel’. The term ‘shekere’ in Nigerian pidgin is a happy instrument they play during celebration. This song is all about that especially with the sampling of Angelique’s legendary hit song ‘Wmbolombo’.
The video is shot in Kenya in the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Narok County among the Maasai people. It is produced by PR guru Anyiko Owoko. It takes advantage of the scenery with the greenery and the shrubby beauty of the Maasai environment. The Sarakasi Dancers also features in the video, backing up Yemi is the epic dance scenes. Award-winning Kenyan designer Wambui Thimba also styled the two African performers. This release is a great example of east meets west; merging the West African sound with the culture of the Kenyan Maasai tribesmen. This track inspires a love for the motherland.
Konde Boy is back with a more traditional release dubbed ‘Hujanikomoa’. With the traditional African drums, the percussions carry the track, and the wordplay is quick and clever. Not easily interpreted, Harmonize shows his prowess in songwriting and double entendre; insisting that no matter what his enemies have planned for him, he is not moved. The release was dropped yesterday 5th February only a few days after ‘Hainistui’ which has garnered more than 500K views in 48 hours.
