On today’s Classic Countdown, we sample music from the year that Bill Clinton was inaugurated as 42nd US President. From the likes of Sade to UB40, take a listen to these awesome songs that are sure to leave you with some great memories.
Kenyan music has over the years improved in terms of the fan base, and popularity.
In the last couple of years, some of the local artistes have propelled the industry to whole new levels, with the likes of Sauti Sol, Victoria Kimani, Eric Wainaina and Stella Mwangi, just to mention a few.
But before musicians such as Octopizzo and Elani, there were other old school artistes, some of whom are still in the game and going, while others just faded into oblivion, and sadly, others left us soon.
Back in the 80s and 90s, the Kenyan music industry was well represented by the likes of Kalamashaka, legendary singer E-sir, K-Rupt, Them Mushrooms, Fundi Konde, Mercy Myra, Nameless, Wahu, Jua Cali, Nazizi, Wyre, Les Wanyika and Nameless and others.
Most of these musicians were renowned artistes, and some of them like Nameless, Wahu and Jua Cali are still in the game but according to Nick Odhiambo and Larry Asego, there are those kinds of artistes who used to sing Kenyan songs that just didn’t make sense.
During their evening show Larry, Nick and Friends, the duo made fun of artistes who drop songs that don’t even have a meaningful message or sensible lyrics.
One of the Kenyan songs the presenters made a fun of was Manyake, which was sung by one hit-maker Circuit and Joel, as the funny guys said that he was suited to be chairman of National Cereals and Produce Board other than a singer.
This two are too hilarious. Listen to the rib-cracking audio below as they make fun of the songs.
It’s Thursday and it’s only right we throw it back in time, thanks to Mwalimu Kingangi’s segment on the morning show, KASHESHE.
If you were born in the 60’s and 70’s, you will know what Classic 105 Morning Co-host Mwalimu Kingang’i was talking about when he did this throwback. Do you remember when it was fashionable to wear cordroy jeans, when men un-buttoned their shirts to display their chest hair? Does this ring a bell?
Yup, even the ladies used pimplex on their faces to get rid of pimples.
Listen to Kingang’i joking about this Throwback Thursday with Maina Kageni.
