Exclusive: Nyashinski talks “Lift Me Up”, album and wedding ceremony

Nyashinski has released yet another hit titled “Lift Me Up.”

Talking about it exclusively to Maina on Classic 105, the singer revealed that this song produced by Cedo is a love ballad that was shot in South Africa.

“We did it a couple of months ago and we wanted to give guys something heading into the holiday season like a holiday gift before the new year.”

Adding “Well, the song is about a woman and its basically about love, about that person who lifts you up when you are down. Someone, whenever they come around you, you feel a presence that uplifts your spirit.  If you have that one person who always picks you up whenever you are feeling down, that song would remind you of them. We put a lot of creativity into it.”

Nyashinski is working on an album come 2020 but is yet to give more details about it.

“It is coming out next year. I’m working towards something quite big that’s why I’ve been silent for so long.”

The hitmaker describes this is a pure blessing “2019 has been full of blessings. I’m sure if anyone is following my life they’ve seen it. “

He made things official this year with his long-time girlfriend Zia Bett but he was reluctant in revealing to Maina details of the official ceremony on-air “I’m not gonna talk about that this morning,” he said.

Adding “I wanna thank all my fans for being there for me, even when I went and came back.”

Nyashinski shares powerful words about cheating after wedding

Nyashinski crashed the dreams of many lasses this weekend after news of his traditional wedding became public.

Over the weekend, the couple held a secret and intimate ceremony to celebrate their union. Only close friends and family were in attendance.

Immediately after the wedding, he took to social media and flaunted his new love. Further to that, he has already become a  relationship expert after dropping quotes. He took to twitter and said,

The responses to this tweet are just too hilarious. Most of them making fun of him for being an expert after a day of marriage. Here are a few hilarious comments:

Nyashinski replied to one guy telling him that he may be two days in the game, however he knows how it is played.

Mzae, mi niko fiti. Niko kwa fertile land.

Other comments were from followers who were concerned he is planning to cheat.

Kibet: Budda umeanza quotes mapema. Was it a wrong decision???

Dan: Bro are you thinking about doing it?? …coz you are saying its too long should we expect it sooner???

Saal: Kwani ushaanza kucheat?

Poggie: He admits it not a mistake, its a designed move

Nyashinksi must be having a good laugh in what tweeps are calling honeymoon time. Though I doubt people go on a honeymoon after a traditional wedding. He still has a white wedding to do.

His followers are already doubting the couple will last long. Especially the men on his timeline telling him it is too early to speak. Now he is high on love and that is why he thinks he will not cheat.

Those giving Nyashinski the benefit of doubt have told him they want to see results of their love in nine months.

Former Kleptomaniax rapper cum singer Nyashinski, is one of the most sought after artistes in Kenya at the moment, thanks to his amazing music, and he’s not about to anytime soon.

Nyashinski real name, Nyamari Ongegu, came back to the entertainment scene after a long musical hiatus when he disappeared from the local scene to go to the US after he moved there with his family.

Nyashinski Reveals Three Songs That Have CHANGED His Life So Far, Spoiler Alert: MALAIKA Is Not One Of Them

The celebrated rapper made a massive comeback, first, he worked with Nameless in Leti Go, then dropped his first single Now You Know.

After that he dropped a gospel song, Mungu Pekee with the lyric video garnering over 2 Million views on YouTube, then out of nowhere, Nyash surprised us with two new singles. He dropped new fresh hits Malaika and Aminia, with full music videos for each song.

But before the main debut of the songs to the public, Nyashinski had given Maina Kageni the audio to Malaika, which he played exclusively on Classic 105, with so much zeal and enthusiasm, as fans received the live song with warm compliments and positive feedback.

But now, Nyashinski surprised many of his fans when he revealed that he was flying back to America, as they were waiting for him to plan for a tour or mega performance.

The big question is, what was he really going to do back there? Well, according to Pulse, Nyash had gone there to check up on his baby mama and his child.

I know this comes as very sad news for most ladies who would wish to find themselves in his arms, but a source has it that the man could be in a committed relationship.

His relationship status, what he likes in a woman, or his family, still remains a mystery to a majority of his fans. In a recent interview last year, Nyashinski revealed that he is actually dating, and it could be this same woman abroad.

Question: Are you dating? 

Nyashinski: Yes, Who? Please don’t ask who, she is just a special person.

Sorry ladies, it looks like this talented hunk has a woman in his life. We hope he can reveal her face with time or at least a name.

 

‘I Never Let One Side Die’- Nyashinski Explains How He Juggles Rapping And Singing

Nyashinski took the Kenyan music industry by storm after releasing two singles, Malaika and Aminia, the same day. He literally just pulled a Beyonce on us. He worked with Cedo, who produced the two songs.

During an interview with Classic 105, Nyashinski revealed how he keeps the different sides of him alive.

nyash

He said: “I never let one side die. I just don’t rap all the time or sing all the time, but I take so much risk to try and express myself. And I’m setting the trend for the next generation to also take the risk for them to express themselves in different ways. In my mind, when I think about which direction my music is going, I think of the old and the young people.”

He said he has no favourite song of his, as he loves all of them the same.

When asked if his songs come from a personal experience, he said: “Yes. I try to write songs that I have gone through because I know people will directly relate with someone else. So I don’t do my songs just for the sake of writing but they come from a real place.”

RAP KING? 5 Reasons Why Kenyans, Including Maina Kageni, Can’t Get Enough Of NYASHINSKI

Former Kleptomaniax rapper Nyashinski is currently trending after he dropped two videos at the same time, same day.

Nyashinski, real name, Nyamari Ongegu debuted two news videos for Malaika and Aminia songs on May 17 after Maina Kageni officially premiered the first song, Malaika, on his breakfast show. The audio to the song went viral and received massive positive feedback.

The celebrated rapper-cum-singer has in the last couple of months proved to be the best in the game, after relocating to Kenya in 2016 and reclaiming his role on the Hip-Hop scene and then delving into the gospel scene.

He started with Now You Know, which got a lot of attention, and then a few weeks later on, he came back with the biggest gospel song of 2016, Mungu Pekee, whose lyrics video is already at 2 Million views.

Nyashinski’s new videos are already doing well, with Malaika already at 142 K view and Aminia at 82 K, which has happened in only 24 hours, and my oh my, this man is in this to win it.

NYASHINSKI

So, here are 5 reasons why we all love Nyashinski;

1. Nyashinski is diverse.
Despite being a secular artiste, he wrote a gospel song and performed it better than some gospel artistes. The song has been played on radio, churches, clubs and even matatus, which goes to show that talent can be used well.

2. Extremely talented.
Nyashinski is undoubtedly one of the most talented musicians from Kenya, even back in his Kleptomaniax days, he was still the illest rapper. When he made his comeback, he revealed his other singing side and Kenyans can’t get enough of it. Oh, and he’s set to launch an album soon.

3. The Man Is Down To Earth
If you have not met Nyash in person, trust me, he’s not a diva like some Kenyan artistes who feel like they are on another level and can’t interact with their fans. He likes to keep his private life off the public radar but when it comes to music, he gives it the best.

NYASHINKSI-3

4. He Is Bold When he came back to Kenya, he wasn’t sure if he would get back to the spotlight and please fans with his music like back in the day, but he was bold enough to take that risk by working on new songs and bang, he nailed it!

5. He’s Real
Nyashinski has been taking shots at some Kenyan rappers and fans who tend to prefer Nigerian music to local jams. The rapper is aware that not everyone will embrace him or welcome him back to the music scene with open arms, thus, he addresses it in his songs just to keep the hype and give the industry a little ‘drama’ to talk about.

The King Has Woken Up: Nyashinski Releases Two Singles, ‘Malaika’ and ‘Aminia’ In A Day

Nyashinski has yet again decided to shut down the music industry. Shutting down is an understatement, he’s literally murdered us.

He’s pulled a Beyonce move on us and released two singles off his upcoming album.

Nyash1

Yesterday, his new hit ‘Malaika’ was debuted on Classic 105 with Maina and King’ang’i in the morning and the world stood still. Everyone was on the verge of blowing up with excitement as they called to ask Maina to play the song again and inquired on details of its release.

Well, the video is finally out, and trust me when I say it’s nothing close to what we had imagined it would be.

Nyash3

The scenery is beautiful and we get the chance to see producer Cedo play the piano. two lovebirds are swimming in love and enjoying every bit of it. But just like any normal relationship, they get into a fight and go their separate ways.

Ok, I don’t want to be a party popper, so why not watch the video yourself.

But that’s not the end of it. He’s also released another jam dubbed ‘Aminia’. Now this jam is going to make so many rappers fall sick. The king has been quiet for long, but y’all gonna learn today.

Having been missing for a while after releasing yet another mega hit, Mungu Pekee, Nyashinski has made it loud and clear that he never left in the first place. He prefers to work on the down-low. Too much noise and empty threats is not his cup of tea.
