Nyashinski just released his video for the track “Finyo.”
The track kicks off acapella, which offers a new take on the traditional hip-hop track. With a quick flow, the track transitions into a string symphony before the kick and flair of the drums come in and out of the track to create an unforgettable tempo. Aside from the dramatic yet tastefully executed instrumentals of the track, the lyrics are the main attraction for any work Nyashinski does. Here are a few aspects of the new release you should pay attention to:
In almost cynical phrasing, Nyashinski dispells the perceptions of “ndukulu” aka weed is also known as cannabis. He sings, “Na ndukulu ni bangi Na ina harufu mbaya Na inaudhi majirani Lakini haidhuru ni sawa Acha wahamie mashinani Ka inawadhuru vibaya.”
With more countries making the moves to legalize recreational use of marijuana including governments such as South Africa, Kenya still remains behind in embracing the benefits of legalizing the medicinal drug. Though Nyashinski is not the first to speak of the magical plant in his music, his comments are critical in championing the cause.
Not one to involve himself in petty beef and altercations, Nyashinski has a few choice words for the talentless artists who use nudity and sexuality to sell music. The award-winning artist rapped, “The Boredom mnasorora Vile hamna Talent So mmegeuza game Sodom na Gomora Vuta hiyo trouser juu wacha kutuonyesha tako Vuta hiyo Mini Chini unamwaibisha mamako Ka unatafuta ule anajua kupika Uji Sio kupiga picha uchi Unfollow Nyako follow nyanyako Ukitaka nyama hapa sawa chief Hii butchery tunaita Usiwahi blunder na beef na si huangalia ni ka skanga Bonga shit unatandikwa ka kitambaa, bedcover ama handkerchief”
