I was so tempted to use the line ‘forget the Wasafi crew members’ on my title but I am glad I have finally done so, ha!
Anyway, we all have come to know and most of all celebrate the WCB crew’s talent and their sudden rise. Their success has seen them take over East Africa and Africa at large and we can’t just ignore their influence.
However, let us not forget that there is a new crop of female Bongo artists who are slowly but surely giving Kenyan artists at large a run for their money.
This crop has picked from the foundation that the likes of Saida Karoli, Ray C and Lady JayDee laid decades ago and are already building stronger pillars for the next generations.
We take a look at these artists who are giving the likes of Avril, Akothee, Victoria Kimani, Fena Gitu and Wangechi a run for their money.
The self proclaimed ‘African princess’ is already causing more than ripples in Kenyan entertainment scene with two songs, ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Njiwa’ in collaboration with Willy Paul.
The petite talented singer is best known for her hit song, ‘Na Yule’ and my favorite ‘Ntande’ which she released five months ago.
She once openly confessed that she is Victoria Kimani’s number one fan when it comes to Kenyan artists.
The Tanzanian bad girl is a hip hop artist who’s flow can only be rivaled by our very own Khaligraph.
She has already made her name known in Kenyan scene with two songs which she has featured Timmy Tdat.
Many only know her as Diamond Platnumz half sister but her talent is undeniable.
Her ‘Kijuso’ jam which she featured Rayvanny controlled Kenya’s airwaves and her latest ‘Muhogo’ song has been well received.
He’s by far Tanzania’s musical queen who has been in the industry for almost a decade now.
She had been in the industry for a while but many Kenyans knew her after she released ‘Me and you’ featuring Ommy Dimpoz.
Aika (Navy Kenzo)
Aika is the girlfriend to Nahreel and the two are the members of Navy Kenzo.
She has been slowly making major moves with every song the two touches turning into gold.
They are best known for their ‘Kamatia’ song but she has also done solo projects.
Ringtone is on Willy Paul’s neck once again after photos of Willy Paul and Nandy getting cosy emerged. The two have released some provocative photos.
Ringtone accused Willy Paul of using God’s name for the wrong reasons and to make money warning him not to play with the name of the lord. He also warned the ‘Njiwa’ hit maker that the gospel industry is not a money making market.
Adding that Willy Paul was incorporating his satanic signs in his so called gospel music.
Willy Paul and Nandy have a new jam dubbed ‘Halelluhjah’ that was released on Friday. But ringtone had something to say;
“Kwani hatutapumua😏😏😏@willy.paul.msafi umezunguka ukisema @officialnandy alitoa mimba yako na utapajika mara ya pili. SO HAPA NINI INAENDELEA?
Wewe @officialnandy umezunguka ukisema @willy.paul.msafi ni maskini anaishi kwa nyumba ya 2 bedroomed kwa gorofa chafu Syokimau. Eti hata haina lift unachokanga kupanda ngazi. Eti Willy amekuaribia jina kua unalala na wazee kenya na kulipwa penda ndogo. Please sort your issues kwanza msitaje jina la YESU ovyo ovyo🚶♂️🚶♂️🚶♂️👨💻👨💻”
The song that had suggestive photos provoked the angry ringtone.
Willy Paul has found what he has been looking for after traveling all the way to Tanzania to find his love. He just released the video to his song, Njiwa featuring Nandy and he confessed she is all he ever wanted.
See, Willy Paul was given a list of various female artiste to collaborate with and all he wanted was Nandy. Mwanamme ni effort, he worked his way to a collaboration.
He confessed he saw a lot in Nandy. From her looks to talent. Willy Paul went to Tanzania but never got the opportunity to see her because of their busy schedule. When Nandy came to Kenya for her media tour, Willy Paul said, not today satan and tried his luck one more time.
anakasauti flani hapo. she was the perfect one. niliona vitu vingi pia tusidanganyane ni mrembo. nilichukulia kuwa video itakuwa safi so urembo ulinivuta
This time he was able to work with her in his studio and Njiwa was born.
Other than that, Willy Paul opened up to Lil Ommy saying he is yet to open a studio, Saldido records which he says will be the biggest in Kenya. He doesn’t want to compare himself with anyone but he knows he is going to give Kenya nothing but the best.
He will also be unveiling his signed artistes.
Of course, the elephant in the room had to address. He sang Jigijigi that got a lot of attention, especially in Tanzania. According to Lil Ommy, Tanzania’s associate the word jigijigi with lungula. Seeing as Willy Paul is a gospel artiste, Tanzanians could not understand why he is singing about that.
He laughed explaining that it was all about the sweetness of a chewing gum that he could not pronounce when he was young and just that.
Jigijigi nikiwa mdogo kulikuwa na big g so when nikiwa mdogo I couldn’t say so i used to say jigijigi. he put the flavor for creativity after the release two weeks later, he is trending talking of sex(jigijigi)
Willy Paul’s greatest achievement in music is when he was trending just after Nicki Minaj after the release of I do featuring Alaine on Apple TV. The whole world thought Alaine was married.
