They are Kenyan songs that made our childhood all the more interesting. The days when you had a songbook where you’d clip out your favorite songs or write the lyrics down just so you could show off how versatile you are with your music. When internet connection to YouTube was something you dreamt of and the only option was to wait for your favorite music show on TV, these songs would come on and make your day a whole lot better.
In honor of #throwbackthursday, here are 8 Kenyan throwback songs that we loved:
Boomba Train – E-Sir ft Nameless
Oh man! If you and your classmates never jammed to this one in class during breaktime, then you really missed out.
Tuendelee ama Tusiendelee – Kleptomaniax
This song was lit! The days when Nyashinski was less lovey-dovey
Vuta Pumzi – Longombas
These cute brothers made a hit with this AIDS awareness track
Manzi Wa Nairobi – Nonini Ft Sylvia
When Nonini was Nonini
Deadly – Nameless
The beats to this song were deadly!
Kenyan Girl Kenyan Boy – Wyre and Nazizi
They made such a great team these two
Under 18 – Jimwat
This song always comes to mind when I see a sponsor with an under 18 at a club
Kamata Dem – Pilipili and Juacali
This song was dope but what happened to Pilipili?
