Hey guys as we still anxiously wait for the election vote counts to come out and life to go on, i thought I’d share something positive about Kenya with you. And that is Kenyan music! I must admit there was a time i stopped listening to Kenyan music.To me the beats started sounding the same, the lyrics were the same…there was nothing new and the artists i liked didn’t make music that caught my ear anymore. But alas around 2011 some new artists came along (they had been around for a while but this is when they started putting their music out there), some new, fresh, young talent who introduced music i haven’t really heard in Kenya. The hip-hop scene in particular started changing for the better, you could imagine my excitement. And that my friends led me to give Kenyan music another chance and ever since i have been liking what i have been hearing even the artists who’ve been around for a while started upping their game.
Here are my top 5 game changers
And I’m sure there’s a whole lot of talent out there that i haven’t mentioned. These are the artists that i have listened to and i just love what they all bring to the table. They all just have a unique feel to them. You can find more of their music on youtube and soundcloud. If you know of any other new or upcoming dope artists in Kenya i can check out, let me know.
