5 Kenyan Musicians Going Strong After A Decade

The Kenyan music industry has grown tremendously over the years. However, as many artists can attest to, it is not an easy industry to penetrate. It takes hard work, great talent and perseverance to remain relevant.

Artists have come and gone and some have managed to stay through it all. Let’s take a look at Kenyan musicians who are still here after more than a decade long:

Wyre

We got to know Wyre back in 2000 when he was in the music group Necessary Noise. The group ultimately split and Wyre continued doing music. 2013 became a great year for him when he released his single ‘Nakupenda pia’, a collaboration with one of Jamaica’s finest dancehall queens Alaine.

Wyre went on and scooped the Best New Entertainment award during the International Reggae and world Music Awards last year.

Redsan

He is considered as the king of Kenyan Dancehall and he sure is. Redsan burst to limelight in the 90 with hit songs like ‘Kenyan’, ‘Wanipa raha’, ‘Step On It’, ‘Chiken’ that made up his first album ‘Seasons of the San’ , released in 2002.

He has managed to remain relevant releasing hits over the years and becoming one of the most sort after Kenyan stage performers.

Jua Cali

Founding Calif Records with his friend clemo marked Jua Cali’s music journey back in 2000.

He recorded first song ‘Ruka’ , in 2001, and followed it with major hits like ‘Nipe Asali ’, ‘Kamata Dame’ a collaboration with Pilipili, ‘Kiasi’, ‘Kwaheri’, ‘hadija’, ‘Mtoto wa geti kali’ among others.

He has managed to stay relevant over the years with his music genre ‘Genge’.

Nameless

Nameless started singing when some of us were still in diapers (pun intended).

He is one of the pioneers of Genge having made his mark  when he joined Ogopa Deejays recording stable in 2001 recording his first single ‘Megarider’.

He has released hit over the years  and his first album ‘On Fire’ that was released in 2004 and went on to be awarded as the Best Album In East Africa in the 2005 Tanzanian Music Awards.

Nonini

He prefers to be reffered to as ‘the godfather of Genge’ probably because he’s been in the industry for a while now.

‘Manzi Wa Nairobi’ was his first hit track released in 2002 and we sure cannot forget ‘We Kamu’ that was a mega hit.

He has continued to release great music as well as forming and mentoring of the successful group P-Unit.

 

 

New Music: Attention-Vivian Ft Redsan

The king if Dancehall music seems to be keeping it quite busy. Yesterday, he was shooting the video to ‘Live It Up’ featuring Victoria Kimani and Creme De La Creme and now, together with Mainswitch’s sweetheart Vivian, they bring us a major dance tune dubbed ‘Attention’ that is sure to have you moving to the beats. 

Vivian herself hasn’t been sleeping either. Her song ‘Charm that features Ugandan artiste Chameleone took the airwaves by storm and has stayed that way for the most part since it’s release. It’s safe to say Kenyan artiste are getting better and better at their craft and hard work is very clear on most of them. 

Top 10 African Dance Moves Of Our Generation

The Shoki

Made popular by Nigerian singer Lil Kesh. The Shoki (which is also the name of a single) has taken the world by storm being danced and performed by multiple stars like Jidenna (in his live BET 2016 performance) and Missy Elliot in her (Where They From) video.

The Alqaeda

They must have named this one al qaeda because it is the bomb! No? Too lame?

Originating from Ghana, this dance has been largely performed by stars in Africa getting famously cosigned in singles by Fuse ODG.

The Akube.

Done best by a group of Facebook famous kids who dance under the name ‘Kida the great’, this is probably one of the simplest dances on the list.

The Atigi

First heard of this from JJC’s single ‘African Skunk’ and it was appropriately danced/performed in the video by famous Naija actress Patience Ozokwor (Mama G).

 

The Azonto

This one we should all know.

The Skelewu

Still not sure on how this one is danced but it did come with a kick ass accompanying jam.

 

The ‘Ngololo’

Performed by the ever vibrant and BET nominated Diamond Platnumz, this one is a household dance in the bongo flavor country of Tanzania.

The ‘Shoulder Back’

Trust Redsan to come up with a catchy song and a dance to go with it.

Shekini

Yeah you know the one. The one where you wave your hands about your chest (in a mannerly fashion) while twisting your feet… okay. Basically the azonto but with extra hand movements.

Sekem.

My favorite on the list! From the video by MC Galaxy for the ‘Sekem’ song.

Is Redsan’s “Shoulder Back” A Dancehall Hit? (AUDIO)

DJ Bash premiered the song at last week’s edition of Industry Nite and finally we have the audio to Redsan’s comeback single Shoulder Back.

This is Redsan’s first song since his high profile collabo with Nyla of Brick & Lace, and Redsan sticks to his affinity for Caribbean vibes as he creates what could just be the next dancehall anthem; possibly even with a new dance, if the “everybody do the shoulder back” chorus is anything to go by.

Speaking of dancehall, make sure you catch Della & ZJ Heno every Sunday evening from 5-7pm as they countdown the biggest reggae and dancehall tunes of the week.
