Fashion Friday: The Trendiest Hairstyle Of The Week Award Goes To?

Remember the daring multicolored fabric hair-do we featured some time back stating that it wasn’t for the faint heart? (Here’s the link: TREND ALERT: ANKARA BRAIDS) Well, it just found a daring heart.

The daring heart is none other than Kenya’s Hip Hop sensation Muthoni Drummer Queen. She  is no stranger to head turning experiments and as expected her new hair style has captured the attention of most of us.

We first saw the do on sultry Singer Dija at the beginning of the year and we admired it from a distance. Since then none (at least that we know of) has strutted the streets in this trend but looks like the non conformist MDQ has set the stage for us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her previous Brazillian wool hairstyle was quite the work as well, accessorized with Masaai beads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her hair clearly has a mind of its own and combined with her artistic mind we just can’t wait to see what she pulls out of the bag next time.

Kenyan Jams To Have Become Record of the Week This Year

Every so often. a brand new single catches the attention of our producers’ very adept music ears and it earns the chance to rule our airwaves as Record of the Week (abbreviated as ROTW).

It’s never a dull moment on the Record of the Week (ROTW) segment of this website, where hits such as Major Lazer’s ‘Run Up’ and Calvin Harris’s ‘Slide’ (both past ROTWs) have lived.

It where you can go to find out what music jams are creating waves on the scene long before the rest of the world catches on.

It’s been 10 months of celebrating big jams and we have found that in all ten months, these were the 4 Kenyan jams that sat at the ROTW table.

 

Muthoni Drummer Queen’s ‘Kenyan Message’.

Produced by two incredible Swiss producers Jean “Hook” Geissbuhler and Greg “GR!” Escoffey, Kenyan Message addressed Kenya’s current sociopolitical scene in an well shot, 3 minute something visual and the song, which later received a star studded remix, was actually part of Muthoni’s sophomore album.

This track as the first Kenyan track to be ROTW this year, playing on heavy rotation all week back in March. 

 

Oksyde & Khaligraph Jones ‘Atiyo Matek’

Shot by Chief Rocker Entertainment, this video was the ultimate collaboration between  mentor and mentee. ‘Atiyo Matek’ was recorded at Blu  Ink studios and was later mastered at Swim Records, and was this Jump Off Frehsman’s first stay at ROTW.

 

Octopizzo ‘TBT’

Quite possibly the biggest banger to have been released from the 254 this year and definitely not Octopizzo’s first stint at ROTW, having featured multiple times since his ‘Ivo, Ivo, Ivo’ release. 

This former ROTW video was shot in USA by iconic director Russ Fraser and has since gone on to garner millions of views. 

 

Fena ‘Doing Her Thing Though’

Fena is also one Kenyan artist who is definitely no stranger to being featured on ROTW. This singer has had a slew of hits be on ROTW from as long as I can remember since her ‘African King’ single. ‘Doing Her Thing Though’ pays tribute to Kenyan females who are succeeding at their crafts and features name-drops of famous Kenyan women like, Lupita Nyong’o, Huddah Monroe and Edith Kimani.

 

 

MDQ Releases New Track “Million Voice” – Watch

Dubbed ‘Million Voice’, the track pays tribute to invisible ordinary Kenyans trying to make it in life. 

“Each song is a three to four-minute glimpse into the life of a particular woman,” says MDQ.

“These women are mainly urban dwellers, and all of them are layered, complex individuals. The topics I chose to cover include love, failing marriage, difficult relationships with mothers, entrepreneurship, betrayal, among others. Expect a roller coaster of emotions delivered on some amazing instrumentals.”

“Million Voice,” which is the second single off her upcoming concept LP, SHE.

Fena Gitu Reigns Supreme With ‘Doing Her Thing Tho’! Now Your #ROTW

Catchy lyrics and infectious beats are only the tip of the iceberg when you attempt to describe Fena latest hit single ‘Doing Her Thing Tho’.

From the songstress who had her humble beginnings singing at campus events while still in uni, to dazzling people at small crowd shows with her unique way of transforming already existing jams into her own, Fena does more than deliver with this three minute something single which is really an ode to how tenacious women can be.

Paying homage to others who’ve curved their own path and earned success being great at what they do (featuring exclusive shout outs to Edith Kimani and Victoria Kimani), Fena does what only she does best, which is to give is a tune that is both a great sing (and dance) along.

Little wonder then that this hit takes over from DJ Khaled’s two week run on Record of the Week (first with Drake featured ‘To The Max’ and later with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller featured ‘Wild Thoughts).

We know you’ll be enjoying listening to the ‘Fenomenal’ queen ‘do her thing’ as this week’s biggest banger, from her witty use of childhood chant and game ‘piki piki maua… ah.. ua ah’.

Featuring multiple wardrobe changes here’s the video to that.
